Abstract

In examining current government policy on regulating negative externalities caused by pollution, it becomes obvious that more efficient policies are needed. One such policy, which many economists support, is an effluent charge. However, the groups who influence government most rarely support effluent charges. In this paper I will cover common economic theory used to support effluent charges, mention some arguments against effluent charges, and finish with their economic affect on business.
