In the Kyoto Protocol agreed national targets for lower emissions of greenhouse gases. Becoming binding in , the Kyoto deal would have cut emissions by 5 per cent relative to the level, but by much more relative to the growth that a do-nothing policy would have allowed.

The table shows levels, actual behaviour in the s and the target for Without this sunscreen, more people develop skin cancer. Organizing international cutbacks in atmospheric pollution is difficult: each country wants to free-ride, enjoying the benefits of other countries cutbacks but making no contribution of its own.

The Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer was signed by nearly 50 countries in Before the Protocol, projected ozone depletion was 5 per cent by and 50 per cent by In the Protocol, countries agreed to take steps to reduce ozone depletion to 2 per cent by with no further deterioration thereafter.

Such optimistic aims are hard to achieve. A second type of atmospheric pollution is even more important.

The greenhouse effect arises from emissions of CFCs, methane, nitrous oxide and, especially, carbon dioxide. Greenhouse gases are the direct result of pollution and the indirect result of the atmospheres reduced ability to absorb them. Plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Chopping down forests to clear land for cattle, as global demand for hamburgers rises, has accelerated the greenhouse effect.

The consequence is global warming. People in London and Stockholm get better suntans, people in Africa face drought and famine. As icecaps melt, the sea rises, flooding low-lying areas. By the temperature will have risen by 4 C, and the sea by 45 cen- EU climate targets in trouble? As a result the forward market in permits fell from m12 per tonne of CO2 to m6 per tonne. However, there are other considerations.

Economics by Begg, David and Fischer, Stanley

The UK government has suggested that it will restrict the supply of permits to the extent that the UK more than meets its obligations under the Kyoto agreement. However, business is concerned that the resulting higher price of emission permits will place UK business at a significant costs disadvantage to its EU rivals. In July , after a meeting in Bonn, countries decided to proceed with a weaker version of the Kyoto Protocol, despite the refusal of the United States to participate.

Experts in the emerging market for climate-friendly investment fear a key scheme to cut the amount of carbon dioxide CO 2 reaching the atmosphere could fail. The controversy centres on the EU Emissions Trading Scheme which comes into force next year and forms a central plank of the policy to meet the targets set by the Kyoto climate change agreement. Most countries are still well adrift of those targets which require EU emissions to be 8 per cent below levels over the period Review questions These questions encourage you to review and apply the knowledge you have acquired from each chapter and can be undertaken to test your understanding or as a focus for discussion in class.

Students can check progress by reviewing the answers at the back of the book.

A market in emission permits should create a financial incentive to invest in cleaner technology. But such a system will only work if the price of permits is higher than the cost of investing in lower emission production technologies.

The concern at present is that governments within the EU are oversupplying permits to business, leading to an excess supply and a fall in the price of permits. For Italy has provided permits which CO2 emissions tonnes per capita 9. Table However, privatization and greater competition within this sector have eroded the bargaining power of workers, who have not secured substantial wage increases over the last decade.

Chapter The labour market G The industry supply curve of labour depends on the wage paid relative to wages in other industries using similar skills. Equilibrium wage differentials are the monetary compensation for differences in non-monetary characteristics of jobs in different industries undertaken by workers with the same skill.

Taking monetary and non-monetary rewards together, there is then no incentive to move between industries. By considering each output, it constructs a total cost curve. For the marginal worker, the wage is a pure transfer earning, required to induce that worker into the industry. For workers prepared to work in the industry at a lower wage, there is an element of economic rent the difference between income received and transfer earnings for that individual.

G In the long run, a rise in the price of labour capital has a substitution effect and an output effect. The substitution effect reduces the quantity of labour capital demanded as the capitallabour ratio rises falls at each output. But total costs and marginal costs of output increase. The more elastic the firms demand curve and marginal revenue curve, the more the higher marginal cost curve reduces output, reducing demand for both factors.

For a higher price of a factor, the substitution and output effects both reduce the quantity demanded. G In free market equilibrium, some workers choose not to work at the equilibrium wage rate. They are voluntarily unemployed. Involuntary unemployment is the difference between desired supply and desired demand at a disequilibrium wage rate.

Workers would like to work but cannot find a job. G There is considerable disagreement about how quickly labour markets can get back to equilibrium if initially in disequilibrium. Possible causes of involuntary unemployment are minimum wage agreements, trade unions, scale economies, insideroutsider distinctions and efficiency wages. G In the short run, the firm has fixed factors, and probably a fixed production technique. The firm can vary short-run output by varying its variable input, labour, which is subject to diminishing returns when other factors are fixed.

The marginal physical product of labour falls as more labour is hired.

Over the last years the real wage has risen but the length of the working week has fallen. Why should the labour supply curve to an industry slope upwards even if the aggregate labour supply to the economy is fixed? The concern at present is that governments within the EU are oversupplying permits to business, leading to an excess supply and a fall in the price of permits. For Italy has provided permits which CO2 emissions tonnes per capita 9.

Over the last years the real wage has risen but the length of the working week has fallen. Why should the labour supply curve to an industry slope upwards even if the aggregate labour supply to the economy is fixed?

Answer the questions with which we began the chapter. Common fallacies Why are the following statements wrong? G A profit-maximizing firm produces the output at which marginal output cost equals marginal output revenue. Equivalently, it hires labour until the marginal cost of labour equals its marginal revenue product. One implies the other. If the firm is a price-taker in its output market, the MRPL is its marginal value product, the output price times its marginal physical product.

If the firm is a price-taker in the labour market, the marginal cost of labour is the wage rate. A perfectly competitive firm equates the real wage to the marginal physical product of labour. G The downward-sloping marginal physical product of labour schedule is the short-run demand curve for labour in terms of the real wage for a competitive firm.

Equivalently, the marginal value product of labour schedule is the demand curve in terms of the nominal wage. The MVPL schedule for a firm shifts up if the output price increases, the capital stock increases or if technical progress makes labour more productive. Higher industry output in response to a wage reduction also reduces the output price.

The industry labour demand curve is steeper less elastic than that of each firm, and more inelastic the more inelastic is the demand curve for the industrys output.

A shift in the output demand curve for the industry will shift the derived factor demand curve in the same direction. G For someone already in the labour force, a rise in the hourly real wage has a substitution effect tending to increase the supply of hours worked, but an income effect tending to reduce the supply of hours worked.

For men, the two effects cancel out almost exactly in practice but the empirical evidence suggests that the substitution effect dominates for women.

Thus women have a rising labour supply curve; for men it is almost vertical. To check your answers to these questions, go to pages G Individuals with non-labour income may prefer not to work. Four things raise the participation rate in the labour force: higher real wage rates, lower fixed costs of working, lower non-labour income and changes in tastes in favour of working.

These explain the trend for increasing labour force participation by married women over the last few decades.

Chapter The labour market Figure All isocost lines have the same slope as L1K1 and the firm produces its given output most cheaply by choosing the point B where the isoquant is tangent to the lowest possible isocost line L1K1. A wage increase makes all isocost lines flatter, parallel to L 2 K 1.

Each unit of capital sacrificed now allows the download of less additional labour. The wage increase has a pure substitution effect from B to B where the original isoquant I has the same slope as the new isocost lines.
