Abstract

The level of public and political debate on carbon taxes is low. Politicians fear the impact of a carbon tax on businesses and low income groups, as well as on their popularity among voters. This valuable book studies carbon taxes from many angles with ample attention paid to practical examples and shows that a smartly designed carbon tax is an indispensable instrument in the transition to a less carbon dependent economy.
