Environmental Regulation and Economic Growth

Synopsis

The essays in this volume, written by practising and academic lawyers, address some of the most fundamental problems facing industrialists and environmentalists throughout the world. The essays review and analyse attempts being made in various countries to blend environmental protection with continued economic development. How does the recently-agreed GATT agreement influence international developments in environmental regulation? Is deregulation an answer? Will the polluter always have to pay and how are the costs to be equitably distributed throughout society? These are some of the fundamental questions posed and discussed by these searching and powerful essays.
