Public policies for environmental protection by Paul R Portney( Book )

38 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 1,905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first edition of Public Policies for Environmental Protection contributed significantly to the incorporation of economic analysis in the study of environmental policy. Fully revised to account for changes in the institutional, legal, and regulatory framework of environmental policy, the second edition includes extensively updated chapters on federal regulation, air and water pollution policy, and hazardous and toxic substances. It includes coverage of the Safe Drinking Water Act, and entirely new chapters on market-based environmental policies, global climate change, and the reduction and handling of solid waste. Portney, Stavins, and their contributors provide an invaluable resource for researchers, policymakers, industry professionals, and journalists--anyone who needs up-to-date information on U.S. environmental policy. With their generous supply of background information, and careful explanation of policy alternatives, the authors provide an ideal book for students in courses about environmental economics or environmental politics."--Publisher description
