One possible implication is that environmental policy may reduce the probability of collusive behaviours in oligopoly. It would be interesting to verify whether these conclusions hold even in the case in which the tax change is such to set the tax rate at the socially optimal level. A positive answer is provided in Carraro and Soubeyran (1994): however, their result is proved for specific utility, emission, and cost functions. A more general analysis could be the subject of further research. Appendix Proof of proposition 1 In order to derive market demand from the representative consumer's optimisation problem, let us consider the indirect utility function V(p,E,R), where p is the market price, E is total polluting emissions, which negatively affect the consumer's utility, and R is the consumer's revenue.
