The Clean Air Act instituted trades between states for SO2 emissions.

timer Asked: Jul 10th, 2015

Question description

The Clean Air Act instituted trades between states for SO2 emissions. Several utility companies across geographic borders have engaged in such trades in recent years. Consider a trade between a utility in Wisconsin and the TVA in Tennessee. Assume that the trade reduces Wisconsin electricity consumers’ bills by a total of $ 1 million, and lowers Tennessee electricity consumers’ bills by $ 500,000. Also assume that the trade improves local environmental quality in Wisconsin by an amount that people value at $ 2 million. If the local environmental quality in Tennessee declines as a result of this trade, then indicate a potential Coase agreement that could avoid the environmental decline and would still make the trade profitable to both parties ? Is such a trade possible in this scenario ?
