Pollution Author: Will Kenton.

    In economics, an externality is the cost or benefit that affects a third party who did not choose to incur that cost or benefit. Externalities often occur when the production or consumption of a product or service's private price equilibrium cannot reflect the true costs or benefits of that product or service for society as a whole. This causes the externality competitive equilibrium to not be a Pareto optimality. Externalities .   A good layman’s introduction to the economics of smoking can be found in Robert D. Tollison and Richard E. Wagner, The Economics of Smoking (Boston: Kluwer Academic Publishers, ). My little book Smoking and Liberty: Government as a Public Health Problem (Montréal: Varia Press, ) provides a non-technical account of surrounding issues.

    Externalities and Property Rights. This chapter focuses on an issue that has been in the background since Chapter 1: externalities. The Efficiency Principle states that market equilibrium is efficient, assuming that all of the relevant benefits from consumption and all of the relevant costs of production are included. We now analyze market equilibria in which this assumption is not true.   The result is that government policies often institutionalize rather than overcome behavioral anomalies. This idea is the principal theme of Viscusi’s Rational Risk Policy, which documents a wide range of parallels between the systematic failures in risky private decisions and government risk policies.
