The Economics of Hazardous Waste and Contaminated Land

  • Elgar Research Reviews in Economics

Harry Sigman

Professor Sigman has selected the most authoritative previously published papers for this pathbreaking research review. This timely review examines private decision-making and government policy for the management of hazardous waste, the clean-up of contaminated land and the redevelopment of brownfield sites. Issues explored include the success of economic incentive policies such as ‘green taxes’ and tort liability, environmental decentralization and attitudes toward risk by both regulators and households.
