Moreover, the approximations of the full Pigouvian tax rates play the same role in social accounting in the decentralized economy as the full Pigouvian tax rates would do in the decentralized version of the cooperative solution. Given the conditions in claim 1, we have reconciled the growth-theoretical approach to social accounting with the (static) willingness-to-pay approach to environmental services. Note also that the consumers, endowed with perfect foresight, know the policy rule and are assumed to reveal their true willingness to pay when asked by the policy maker.

Energy powers the circular flow of goods, services and factors of production between firms and households. The source of this energy is dictated by the laws of thermodynamics. The first law of thermodynamics states that matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed; therefore humans must obtain them from the environment. The second law of thermodynamics implies that the ability of energy to do work declines as energy is used to do work. Consequently, new sources of energy must be obtained continuously from the environment.
