AUTO POLLUTION MUDDLE

THIS ARTICLE REVIEWS THE CURRENT STATE OF AUTOMOTIVE POLLUTION CONTROL POLICY AND TECHNOLOGY, AND DEMONSTRATES THAT AN ALTERNATIVE POLICY STRATEGY, ONE BASED ON AN EFFLUENT CHARGE, IS PREFERABLE IN ALMOST EVERY RESPECT. POLLUTION TAXES WOULD LEAVE INDIVIDUALS FREE TO SEEK OUT THE LOWEST-COST, MOST EFFICIENT MEANS OF CURBING THE POLLUTION. THE TESTING-MAINTENANCE LINK WOULD BE FIRMLY ESTABLISHED AS A NATURAL PART OF THE TAX PROGRAM. COMPETITION IN THE PROVISION OF CONTROL DEVICES WOULD BE OPENED TO ALL COMERS.
