This paper concerns international coordination of environmental taxation.The main contribution of the paper is to provide a frame-work for dynamiccost benefit analysis of environmental tax reforms in a global economy withtransboundary environmental problems. We show that the welfare effects ofgreen tax reform in a multi-country economy may differ substantially fromearlier results associated with representative agent models, where thetransboundary aspect of the environmental problems is neglected.
