Economic Theories on Principles - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 418f
Principles/Environmental damage/Intervention/Economic Theory: Regulatory principles for state intervention in the event of environmental damage:
Polluter-principle: the overall economic costs of environmental pollution - but at least the prevention costs of environmental damage - should be charged to the physical polluters through appropriately designed environmental policy measures in order to ensure the internalisation of existing (negative) external effects.
Principle of origin: environmental damage should be avoided at the place where it occurs, at the expense of the costs incurred.
Beneficiary principle: Beneficiaries of environmental protection measures should compensate those who suffer economic losses as a result of their environmentally compatible behaviour in the form of appropriate preventive measures.
In comparison to the polluter-principle, this results in a "reversal" of the cost burden of environmental protection activities - with the same efficiency effect - and thus diametrically different distribution results between the physical perpetrators and the injured parties of environmental damage.
Common burden principle: The costs of environmental damage or the proceeds of environmental protection measures are to be borne by the society as a whole by means of financing from tax revenue.
