We get closer to the efficient solution in which the marginal cost of pollution reduction is equalized across firms. When a firm has many factories, the bubble policy applies pollution controls to the firm as a whole. The firm can cut back most in the plants in which pollution reduction is cheapest.

Thus, the US policy combines control over quantities for aggregate pollution, where the risks and uncertainties are greatest, with control through the price system for allocating efficiently the way these overall targets are achieved. BOX Atmosphere of pollution timetres. As with acid rain, organizing collective international cutbacks has been difficult.

In the Kyoto Protocol agreed national targets for lower emissions of greenhouse gases. Becoming binding in , the Kyoto deal would have cut emissions by 5 per cent relative to the level, but by much more relative to the growth that a do-nothing policy would have allowed.

Organizing international cutbacks in atmospheric pollution is difficult: each country wants to free-ride, enjoying the benefits of other countries cutbacks but making no contribution of its own.

The Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer was signed by nearly 50 countries in Before the Protocol, projected ozone depletion was 5 per cent by and 50 per cent by In the Protocol, countries agreed to take steps to reduce ozone depletion to 2 per cent by with no further deterioration thereafter.

Such optimistic aims are hard to achieve. A second type of atmospheric pollution is even more important. The greenhouse effect arises from emissions of CFCs, methane, nitrous oxide and, especially, carbon dioxide. Greenhouse gases are the direct result of pollution and the indirect result of the atmospheres reduced ability to absorb them.

Plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Chopping down forests to clear land for cattle, as global demand for hamburgers rises, has accelerated the greenhouse effect.

As a result the forward market in permits fell from m12 per tonne of CO2 to m6 per tonne.

However, there are other considerations. The UK government has suggested that it will restrict the supply of permits to the extent that the UK more than meets its obligations under the Kyoto agreement.

However, business is concerned that the resulting higher price of emission permits will place UK business at a significant costs disadvantage to its EU rivals. In July , after a meeting in Bonn, countries decided to proceed with a weaker version of the Kyoto Protocol, despite the refusal of the United States to participate.

Experts in the emerging market for climate-friendly investment fear a key scheme to cut the amount of carbon dioxide CO 2 reaching the atmosphere could fail.

But such a system will only work if the price of permits is higher than the cost of investing in lower emission production technologies. The concern at present is that governments within the EU are oversupplying permits to business, leading to an excess supply and a fall in the price of permits.

Chapter The labour market G The industry supply curve of labour depends on the wage paid relative to wages in other industries using similar skills. Equilibrium wage differentials are the monetary compensation for differences in non-monetary characteristics of jobs in different industries undertaken by workers with the same skill.

Taking monetary and non-monetary rewards together, there is then no incentive to move between industries.

By considering each output, it constructs a total cost curve. For the marginal worker, the wage is a pure transfer earning, required to induce that worker into the industry. For workers prepared to work in the industry at a lower wage, there is an element of economic rent the difference between income received and transfer earnings for that individual.

G In the long run, a rise in the price of labour capital has a substitution effect and an output effect. The substitution effect reduces the quantity of labour capital demanded as the capitallabour ratio rises falls at each output. But total costs and marginal costs of output increase. The more elastic the firms demand curve and marginal revenue curve, the more the higher marginal cost curve reduces output, reducing demand for both factors.

For a higher price of a factor, the substitution and output effects both reduce the quantity demanded.

G In free market equilibrium, some workers choose not to work at the equilibrium wage rate. They are voluntarily unemployed. Involuntary unemployment is the difference between desired supply and desired demand at a disequilibrium wage rate. Workers would like to work but cannot find a job. G There is considerable disagreement about how quickly labour markets can get back to equilibrium if initially in disequilibrium.

Many economists prefer taxes to quantity restrictions. If each firm is charged the same price or tax for a marginal unit of pollution, each firm equates the marginal cost of reducing pollution to the price of pollution. Any allocation in which different firms have different marginal costs of reducing pollution is inefficient.

If firms with low marginal reduction costs contract further and firms with high marginal reduction costs contract less, lower pollution is achieved at less cost. The main problem with using taxes rather than quantity restrictions is uncertainty about outcome. Suppose pollution beyond a critical level has disastrous consequences, for example irreversibly damaging the ozone layer. By regulating the quantity directly, society can ensure a Examples throughout the chapters bring economics to life and demonstrate the application of theories and concepts to contemporary issues.

Lessons from the United States The US has gone furthest in trying to use property rights and the price mechanism to cut back pollution efficiently. The US Clean Air Acts established an environmental policy that includes an emissions trading programme and bubble policy.

The Acts lay down a minimum standard for air quality and impose pollution emission controls to particular polluters. Any polluter emitting less than their specified amount gets an emission reduction credit ERC , which can be sold to another polluter wanting to exceed its allocated pollution limit.

Thus, the total quantity of pollution is regulated but firms that can reduce pollution cheaply have an incentive to do so, and sell off the ERC to firms for which pollution reduction is more expensive. We get closer to the efficient solution in which the marginal cost of pollution reduction is equalized across firms.

When a firm has many factories, the bubble policy applies pollution controls to the firm as a whole. The firm can cut back most in the plants in which pollution reduction is cheapest.

Thus, the US policy combines control over quantities for aggregate pollution, where the risks and uncertainties are greatest, with control through the price system for allocating efficiently the way these overall targets are achieved.

When a single firm produces the entire industry output, no other firm can break into the market and make a profit. A shift in the output demand curve for the industry will shift the derived factor demand curve in the same direction.
