...pollution control is rather interesting in discussing the socio-political significance of the two major political scientific applications. The first is the iron triangle and the second is the issue network(s). According to Tietenberg, there is a need to reform the pollution policy. Tietenberg had realized this as early as 1985 (1). However, until we examine the political scientific mechanisms in this sphere, it is difficult to understand the process as a whole even as we enter the second decade of 21st century.

...Pollution Control Measures Introduction Following the Kyoto Protocol that called for the nations to reduce the amount of environmental pollution, a number of control measures are applied. The three major control measures that are adopted by nations include tradable emission permits, taxes and legal regulatory measures (Tucker, 2011). Each of the control measures has an impact on the economic condition of the country due to its effect on production and employment. Thus, the choice of a pollution control measure that should b adopted by a country depends on the economic impact it has on society. Consequently, this paper explores the merits of the three pollution control measures to establish... ...
