Extract

Sometimes it is said that ‘the best way to predict the future is to help shape it.’ We can help shape an environmentally sustainable future by designing more environmentally friendly taxation systems. Volume X of Critical Issues in Environmental Taxation contains 15 chapters which provide insights and analysis for achieving environmental sustainability through fiscal policy. The main emphasis of Volume X is on environmental taxation and climate change. The chapters are written by environmental taxation scholars from around the world. We hope you find their ideas to be interesting, thought-provoking, and worthy of serious consideration by policy makers.
