re: pollution

Yes, i believe it.  Which gives me an idea.  I will sell my personal pollution quota to the highest bidder.  Do I hear any offers?

To sell a pollution quota, you must own a pollution quota.

By allocating pollution output limits, the overall level of air and water pollution can be decreased -- in theory.  This would provide a profit incentive for companies to choose cleaner forms of production.  Some critics say it would simply cause polluting companies to buy quotas from clean companies who would have excess pollution quotas to sell.  Consolidation of clean companies by dirty companies would assure that pollution quotas would exist in ample supply with no effects to shareholders.  Even under this scenario though, there would still be a revenue source to be found in quota sales that could be enhanced with lower pollution output by the conglomerate.

Ultimately, the cleanest way to make things for consumption in industrialized countries is to have them made in developing countries where there are fewer restrictions on polluting.  These countries also have such low labor rates that goods can be made, shipped and lambasted but still be sold at a handsome profit -- and for less.
