Suppose that the governmental authorities wished to decrease use of a pesticide that is leaching into groundwater supplies in a watershed by 60% from current use levels. Discuss the advantages and/or disadvantages of distributing marketable pesticide permits to each farm operating in the watershed equal to 40% of its current level of use of that pesticide, versus simply ordering each farm to reduce pesticide use to 40% of current levels under threat of heavy fines for non-compliance.

    Draw up a costs/benefits table for each option

    Think about your reaction to being ordered to use less on threat of penalty.

    What would your reaction be to being given a permit.. would you think the government understands your position better?
