Environmental regulatory policies such as taxes, subsidies, and transferable discharge permits are somewhat less decentralized because they involve more government intervention in the form of setting tax rates, subsidy levels, or the number of permits to trade. However, they still allow economic agents to decide for themselves how they wish to respond to the policy—for example, how much to reduce emissions. Environmental standards are a very centralized policy: governments set the emission level and polluters have no options but to meet the standard or face penalties for non-compliance. We start with the techniques that are at the decentralized end of the continuum from decentralized to centralized, then examine policies involving more government involvement in the chapters that follow. Consider a simple example. Suppose there are several industrial plants around the lake.
