Oikos: The environmentally destructive tax rort for cars. The bottom line:
There’s lots of talk about new measures to discourage the use of fossil fuels and debates about carbon taxes, carbon trading, mandatory renewable targets and so on. But a good start would be simply removing the economically questionable and environmentally damaging tax breaks that exist for private cars.
Can’t say I disagree. I know a few people that have cars as part of salary packages or work pays for them – what say ye?
