Allocation in the European Emissions Trading Scheme : rights, rents and fairness( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A critical issue in dealing with climate change is deciding who has a right to emit carbon dioxide, particularly when those emissions are limited. Allocation in the European Emissions Trading scheme provides the first in-depth description and analysis of the process by which rights to emit carbon dioxide were created and distributed in the European Emissions Trading Scheme. This is the world's first large-scale experiment with an emission trading system for carbon dioxide and is likely to be copied by others if there is to be a global regime for limiting greenhouse gas emissions. The book consists of contributions by participants in the allocation process in ten representative member states and at the European Commission. The problems encountered by these ten representative countries, the solutions found and the choices they made, will be of interest to all who are concerned with climate policy and the use of emissions trading."--BOOK JACKET
Game practice and the environment by C Carraro( )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents ground-breaking applications of game theory to deal with today's pressing environmental problems. It will become a valuable source of reference for academics and researchers interested in environmental economics and management, game theory and international relations."--Jacket
Climate and trade policy : bottom-up approaches towards global agreement by C. Egenhofer, C Carraro( )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The difficulty of achieving and implementing a global climate change agreement has stimulated a wide range of policy proposals designed to favour the participation of a large number of countries in a global cooperative effort to control greenhouse gas emissions. This significant book analyses the viability of controlling climate change through a set of regional or sub-global climate agreements rather than via a global treaty."--BOOK JACKET
New directions in the economic theory of the environment by Carlo E Carraro( Book )

28 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1997, this volume addressed the growing preoccupation of scientists at the time had in environmental phenomena, such as global warming, ozone layer depletion, acid rains, fresh water and ocean pollution, desertification, deforestation and the loss of bio-diversity. The crucial and pressing nature of these issues spawned says the author a new wave of research in environmental economics. The volume provides broad surveys of the developments in the economics of the environment and reports on the developing set of environmental problems, analytical tools and economic policies. The importance of the developing approach was that environmental problems are no longer isolated from all other economic dimensions. Throughout the volume they are analysed in an open, generally non-competitive economy with transnational or global externalities. The first part deals with the relationship between the environment, economic growth and technological innovation. The second part analyses the optimal design of environmental taxation, while the third part considers the international dimension of environmental policy
Il libro dell'arte di mercatura by Benedetto Cotrugli( )

20 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first English translation of Benedetto Cotrugli's 'The Book of the art of trade', a lively account of the life of a Mediterranean merchant in the Early Renaissance, written in 1458. The book is an impassioned defense of the legitimacy of mercantile practices, and includes the first scholarly mention of double-entry bookkeeping. Its four parts focus respectively on trading techniques, from accounting to insurance, the religion of the merchant, his public life, and family matters. Originally handwritten, the book was printed in 1573 in Venice in an abridged and revised version. This new translation makes reference to the new critical edition, based on an earlier manuscript that has only recently been discovered. With scholarly essays placing Cotrugli's work into historical context and highlighting key themes, this volume is an important contribution to our understanding of the origins of management and trade practices"--OCLC
Developments of control theory for economic analysis by Carlo Carraro( Book )

18 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giovanni Castellani Rector of the University of Venice This book contains the Proceedings of the Conference on "Economic Policy and Control Theory" which was held at the University of Venice (Italy) on 27 January-l February 1985. The goal of the Conference was to survey the main developments of control theory in economics, by emphasizing particularly new achievements in the analysis of dynamic economic models by conƯ trol methods. The development of control theory is strictly related to the development of science and technology in the last forty years. Control theory was indeed applied mainly in engineering, and only in the sixties economists started using control methods for analysƯ ing economic problems, even if some preliminary economic applicaƯ tions of calculus of variations, from which control theory was then developed, date back to the twenties. Applications of control theory in economics also had to solve new, complicated, problems, like those encountered in optimal growth models, or like the determination of the appropriate interƯ temporal social welfare function, of the policy horizon and the relative final state of the system, of the appropriate discount factor. Furthermore, the uncertainty characterizing economic models had to be taken into account, thus giving rise to the development of stochastic control theory in economics

Control and game-theoretic models of the environment by Carlo Carraro( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book collects some recent works on the application of dynamic game and control theory to the analysis of environmental problems. This collec­ tion of papers is not the outcome of a conference or of a workshop. It is rather the result of a careful screening from among a number of contribu­ tions that we have solicited across the world. In particular, we have been able to attract the work of some of the most prominent scholars in the field of dynamic analyses of the environment. Engineers, mathematicians and economists provide their views and analytical tools to better interpret the interactions between economic and environmental phenomena, thus achiev­ ing, through this interdisciplinary effort, new and interesting results. The goal of the book is more normative than descriptive. All papers include careful modelling of the dynamics of the main variables involved in the game between nature and economic agents and among economic agents themselves, as well-described in Vrieze's introductory chapter. Fur­ thermore, all papers use this careful modelling framework to provide policy prescriptions to the public agencies authorized to regulate emission dy­ namics. Several diverse problems are addressed: from global issues, such as the greenhouse effect or deforestation, to international ones, such as the management of fisheries, to local ones, for example, the control of effluent discharges. Moreover, pollution problems are not the only concern of this book
International environmental agreements on climate change by Carlo Carraro( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an updated overview of the current research on analysis and modelling of international agreements on climate change. The book first offers a theoretical framework for understanding the features of international agreements on climate, then shows different integrated assessment modelling approaches designed to analyse the impact of possible agreements of emissions abatement and the related costs. In the book, which is the outcome of cooperation between the Stanford Energy Modelling Forum and the Fondazione ENI E. Mattei, most economic/climate modellers provide their own assessment of climate policies and in particular of the potential implications of the Kyoto agreement. Institutional and legal issues and the political economy behind international agreements on climate are not neglected, thus providing a comprehensive, albeit preliminary, exploration of crucial aspects of current negotiations on climate. In view of the beginning of the new IPCC process that should lead to the 2000 IPCC report, this book constitutes an important basis of knowledge and a good example of fruitful interactions amongst different experts. The complexity which characterises climate issues and the uncertainty surrounding the causes and effects of climate changes makes this interdisciplinary effort vital for a careful design of future policy actions
Firms, governments, and climate policy : incentive-based policies for long-term climate change( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the majority of industrialised countries is the first small step on the way to an effective climate policy. In the long-term, climate policy will call for even greater GHG reductions and the full participation of the global community. The five integrated chapters of this book review theoretical findings and empirical evidence in the search for the right incentives which could induce firms and governments to undertake GHG abatement measures." "This book analyses the policy mixes that provide the best possible incentives for firms and governments to act on climate change and sign up to international climate agreements. In doing so, the authors address a multitude of related issues including the linkages between flexible mechanisms and voluntary agreements; regulation and taxation; the opportunities and barriers of the Kyoto Protocol for industry; and the incentives for firms to undertake climate-related R&D and investments. As well as illustrating the environmental benefits and cost-effectiveness of alternative policy mixes in reducing GHG emissions, the authors also offer sensible policy prescriptions for increasing the numbers of countries that ratify and implement climate agreements." "Environmental and resource economists, environmental scientists, climate analysts and policymakers should all read this book which offers an authoritative contribution to what is arguably the most critical contemporary environmental policy issue."--BOOK JACKET
International economic policy coordination( Book )

11 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental policy and market structure by Carlo Carraro( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the central tenets of this book is that governmental policies must be designed to take into account market characteristics and environmental phenomena - simultaneously. This volume contains a new research effort of the `Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei' and explores the theoretical underpinnings of environmental policy in a sub-optimal world. Topics considered link economic issues (oligopolistic market structures, firm heterogeneity, and the strategic behavior of governments) to environmental issues (emission abatements, cleaner technologies, and environmental taxation). The articles in this volume were chosen to achieve a balance between breadth and depth and were written by leading experts in the field. In short, this book is rich in policy implications and raises new issues and questions for future research
Trade, innovation, environment by Carlo Carraro( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book covers some of the most relevant issues in the new environmental economics. Its main emphasis is on the international dimension of environmental phenomena, which implies the necessity of designing properly coordinated economic/environmental policies. The issue of policy coordination is analysed both in the case where environmental externalities arise because of cross-country and global pollution flows, and in the case where trade and competitiveness effects induced by environmental regulation affect countries' relative economic performance. The context in which these issues are analysed relies on recent developments of game theory, industrial economics, international trade where imperfect competition and governments' strategic interactions are accounted for. Recognizing that traditional environmental policy tools are not sufficient to regulate the present environment--economy interactions leads to appraise the effects of more sophisticated policy mixes. In particular, policies to stimulate technological innovation, to regulate industrial markets, to offset negative trade effects are examined. Attention is also devoted to the issue of economic growth. Under which conditions is endogenous growth consistent with environmental protection? Which policy mix can loosen the traditional tradeoff between environment and growth? These are two of the many critical questions which are addressed, and which find very interesting, albeit preliminary, answers
Voluntary approaches in environmental policy by Carlo Carraro( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chapters of this book therefore provide a useful assessment of the main features and of the potential implementation problems of a new, important and promising environmental policy instrument
Environmental fiscal reform and unemployment by Carlo Carraro( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Union faces several interlinked challenges: how to protect the environment and foster sustainability; how to reduce unemployment and enhance competitiveness in a context of growing globalization; how to reduce regional disparities among and within member countries. The recent policy debate has revealed that such objectives are not a trade off provided they are tackled in concert. In particular, win-win policy options are available to the EU, given an appropriate integration of regulation, macro-, social-, fiscal- and environmental policy. The evidence shows that an optimization of each single policy will not meet the needs of the EU. But an integrated approach would allow the implementation of a genuine sustainable development policy. This book discusses the most recent results available on the green tax reform and the double dividend hypothesis. The first part is devoted to theoretical analysis and the second provides empirical results
The European carbon tax : an economic assessment by Carlo Carraro( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The possible introduction of a carbon tax in Europe is an issue which has attracted the attention of numerous economists and policymakers. The problems under debate concern the effects of the tax at different levels: what costs, in terms of GDP growth, will be paid by each European country? Will the effects on income distribution be larger than those on income level? Should the carbon tax be coordinated among the European countries or would it be better to impose a uniform tax rate on carbon emissions? Can Europe introduce the tax unilaterally or should this be done jointly, with the other industrialised countries? This book provides answers to such questions. It analyses the effects of the European carbon tax on both a domestic and at an international level

Efficiency and equity of climate change policy by Carlo Carraro( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy is a comprehensive assessment of the economic effects of climate change policy, addressing the issues with a quantitative modelling approach. The book thus goes beyond the usual statements on the efficiency of economic instruments to identify the way gains and losses are distributed; who gains and who loses. Both the costs and benefits of climate change policies are analyzed. Most papers also provide useful information on the economic features of the Kyoto Protocol, its possible extensions, and the effect of different implementation strategies (such as the debate on emissions trading ceilings). Readership: Scientists and policy makers, students and specialists in climate related industries, members of NGOs, and policy advisors
The endogenous formation of economic coalitions( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important book, written by some of the leading scholars in the field, provides a comprehensive overview of recent advances in coalition theory and presents both the latest theoretical developments and novel applications in the field of economics.--
