Kurtyka, Oliwia and Mahenc, Philippe (2011) The switching effect of environmental taxation within Bertrand differentiated duopoly. Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, 62 (2). 267–277. ISSN 0095-0696Full text not available from this repository.
We investigate second-best optimal taxation of the polluting variety of a product in a Bertrand duopoly with differentiated varieties. The analysis provides novel insight on a useful social function of environmental regulation. Besides internalizing the environmental externality, the taxation of the polluting variety improves the matching of consumers and product varieties, and so creates a socially desirable business switching between the differentiated varieties.
