First published in 1997, this volume goes some way towards redressing the imbalance caused by a lack of attention paid to the environmental implications of the fiscal system by systematically examining the Irish fiscal system in an effort to identify the environmental effects through its incentives and suggesting ways of altering that system in an environmentally friendly way. Issues explored across a range of sectors include the taxing of polluting activities, agriculture and forestry, environmental services, energy and tourism.
