(p.220) 11 Implications of a World Economy for Environmental Policy and Law
The Economics of Transnational Commons

Lynton Keith Caldwell

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the implications of a world economy for environmental policy and law. The chapter states that the interpretation of the influence of an emergent world economy on environmental policies presented in this chapter follows a logical topical sequence. It begins with a description of the techno-economic developments that are shaping the present world and the principal environmental issues that have consequently arisen are identified. This is followed by a synthesis of economic-environmental interrelationships that is relevant for the present context of national and international environmental policy and law. The chapter also analyses alternative strategies such as administrative, fiscal, diplomatic, legal, and ethical strategies, through which transnational issues of global change are addressed. The implications of policy choices for the future of the world economy and of the human condition in the biosphere are also conjectured.

Keywords:   world economy, ethical strategies, environmental policy, environmental law
