About this book
The world has come a long way since Alfred Marshall and Arthur Pigou called over a century ago for introducing costs to address negative externalities. The world has since experienced major global agreements to further sustainability issues. Unlike normal goods, the major problem that has often restricted collective action to deal with sustainability as a public good has been to get countries treat it as a global common by bearing the financial burden essential to honour it. This book brings together chapters that deal with selected sustainability issues, both conceptual issues, as well as empirical experiences that can serve as paths countries could adapt and adopt in their quest to further the financing of sustainability. Students and policy makers in particular will find the book illuminating.
