Title: Pricing problems in an input-output approach to environment protection

Abstract

Professor Leontief's input-output approach to assessing the costs of environmental protection is shown to be preferred because it gives a systematical numerical description. The United Kingdom model is used to show how pollution emission standards and taxes impact economic consumption and pollution. A dichotomy is revealed of quasi-dual and opportunity costs. The quasi-dual pricing program is shown to permit both standards and taxes to be included in the same framework because enough revenue is raised to ontrol pollution at a set standard. (DCK)
