International Journal of Social Economics
Article publication date: 1 April 1991
Environmental degradation manifests itself both at the local and the global level. In order to avoid further environmental degradation environmental quality should be considered as a target of economic policy. The article provides a documentary overview of important environmental studies and shows the results of an empirical scenario study for The Netherlands. Finally, some policy implications of the problem of global warming as a result of increasing carbon dioxide concentrations are discussed.
