Hitting the Jackpot
The idea of environmental taxes is not new. In 1989, David Pearce produced for the Department of the Environment in Britain a document which recommended a comprehensive green taxation program in the UK (Dryzek, 2005, p. 130-132). The U.S., Canada, and many European countries have already implemented some form of environmental levies, albeit very minimally. The global warming debate has also led to talks of carbon taxes in several countries.
