Econ quesition +k
The government identifies a situation where production of a good is generating a negative externality. A reasonable option for the government to consider is to:
a. pass a law preventing the production of this good.
b. impose a tax on the sale of this good.
c. subsidize the cost of producing the good.
d. pass a law preventing the consumption of this good.
e. ignore the problem.
I would go with B

how the fuck are you guys making the backwards d's
taxing a good brings the price to the social equilibrium which negates the negative externality
Are those next years goggles?

This sentence is false.
B is the most effective solution. Prevention would work but not as well, and government would gain less revenue.
B for sure man. The gov won't waste resources (time, money) in prevention of consumption so it will tax the good to counter the negative effects on society.
b sounds good

If anyone ever told you that I give a damn, they damned well told you wrong!
