Step 2. Virtually explore your own neighborhood, town, or city and find an example of a negative externality.
Step 3. Tell us about it in a discussion post. Your post must include four (4) things:
Identification of your local environment negative externality.
One (1) point
An assessment of the market failure that allows the externality to occur. Why are existing markets failing?
Two (2) points
Identification of the parties involved. Who is the economic agent generating the externality and who are the agents that are directly and unintentionally affected by the actions of the generating agent?
Two (2) points
Compose a 250 word (max) discussion of if and how you could use a market-based solution (similar to the one in the video) to align incentives to correct the externality in your community.
