Environment/Economic Theories: from an economic and political science perspective, environmental goods have structural characteristics that include scarcity and characteristics of social goods (e.g. free rider problem).
These structural features serve as a basis for the economic justification of state environmental policy.
Problem: if environmental goods are to be managed via the market, this requires a) the existence of individual preferences for these goods and b) a functioning price mechanism in advance if a "market failure" is not to occur. Endress 2000, p. 16f. (1)
