32) may seem to be the differential equation we are looking for. 33) s To prove the welfare equivalence of the pseudo Hamiltonian, we would need to assume that H p0 (T ) approaches zero when T goes to infinity; a mathematical property of the present-value Hamiltonian in ‘well-behaved’ infinite horizon control problems derived by Michel (1982). 32) only holds on (t, t + dt). Discrete information collection introduces discontinuities into the problem. This implies, for example, that the upper limit of integration on (s, s + ds) will, in general, differ from the lower limit of integration on (s + ds, s + 2ds).

To do so, these scientists developed a logically consistent model of human interactions with the environment. This ecological economic model is irreconcilable with many aspects of the mainstream economic model. This led to a considerable body of empirical research that tested the explanatory power of the ecological economic model relative to the mainstream economic model. In general, the ecological model performed well. Despite these successes, I believe that ecological economics is on the verge of being absorbed by mainstream economics.

They show, within a class of linear-quadratic differential games, that the value function may be discontinuous, even if the game itself has a very simple structure. They also give sufficient conditions for differentiability, which turn out to be related to the conditions for a unique equilibrium. Note the absence of the so-called tax-base effects via the preexisting emission taxes. These tax-base effects, which normally would influence the welfare effect following a tax change, are offset by terms that have to do with the effect of the reform on the domestically created pollution.
