  10TH ECONOMICS PROJECT FOR STUDENTS EXEMPTED FROM THE TERM EXAM

                                  Kyoto Protocol


                                                                                      9
In August 1997 The Kyoto Protocol was drawn up. The Kyoto Protocol is supposed to
reduce the emissions of the six greenhouse gases. Once The Kyoto Protocol is signed
by a country, it legally binds the nation to reduce emissions of these greenhouse
gases by an average of 5.2% below their 1990 levels over the first five year period,
from 2008 to 2012.

As of January 28th 2003 almost all of the industrialized countries have signed The
Kyoto Protocol. The United States of America pulled out of The Kyoto Protocol in
March 2001. This almost destroyed The Kyoto Protocol. However, July 2001 a
compromised scaled-down version of The Kyoto Protocol was created but President
Bush has stated that the US will never sign The Kyoto Protocol.

Issues you may want to address in your Kyoto Protocol
paper

   1. What will the economic effects of The Kyoto Protocol be for countries that did
      or did not sign it?
   2. Why didn’t President Bush want to sign The Kyoto Protocol?
   3. What would the economic effects have been to the US if Bush had signed the
      Kyoto Protocol?
   4. What public policies will have to be changed if the US decides to sign The
      Kyoto Protocol? What effect will these policies have?

                                 Cigarette taxes

Cigarette taxes are a hot topic. All 50 state governments have enacted taxes on
cigarettes, and many have raised their taxes several times. Cigarette taxes are a
way governments can achieve two social objectives. The first objective is to reduce
the number of citizens who smoke. The government issuing the cigarette tax hopes
that the rise in the cost of a package of cigarettes will induce people to quit smoking.
The second objective is to raise government revenue. A cigarette tax, like any other
tax, increases the amount of revenue governments can spend on social programs.

Issues you may want to address in your cigarette tax
paper

   1. Will cigarette taxes have the desired effect of reducing the demand for
      cigarettes?
   2. Do increases in cigarette taxes have any other effects?
   3. What are the distributional effects of cigarette taxes? Who pays for the bulk of
      the taxes: richer citizens or poorer citizens?
   4. What do governments spend cigarette tax revenues on? How much of the tax
