Summary
This paper studies how current legal principles and statutory provisions of international trade agreements might restrict or enhance national environmental policies, and evaluates the corresponding impacts on economic efficiency. It focuses in particular on the implications of trade agreements for market-based environmental policies. Just as trade negotiators have reoriented trade protection toward price-based tools ("tarification"), today's environmental policymakers are relying more heavily on fiscal instruments and market-oriented, incentive-based mechanisms, such as taxes and subsidies, to achieve their goals. The legal provisions of the GATT that have important implications for national, market-based environmental policies are highlighted and evaluated for their effects on the economic efficiency of different environmental policies
