Economics - Pollution Permits for Sale

Economics - Pollution Permits for Sale

One pdf file, two Permit types, green and blank for easy copying. A practical and memorable activity which helps students to understand the process of using pollution permits as a cap and trade scheme in order to address the problem of negative production externalities. I have found this helpful, especially, for EFL students and those with more kinaesthetic learning strengths. Students take on the role of CEOs of major private sector energy companies buying and selling permits to create a market. Many discussion points! Courses: Economics: IB, A-level, AS-level, GCSE, International GCSE Ages: 16+ Topics: Common Access Resources/ externalities /Emissions trading/cap and trade/pollution permits
