Abstract

The purpose of this comment is to correct some mathematical and implicational errors in Roelfsema [in J.Environ.Econom.Management 53, 270-275 (2007)] who points out a new theoretical possibility explaining the discrepancy between theory and evidence about 'the race to the bottom' in non-cooperative environmental policy making. We also mention the primary factor in determining the effects of strategic voting and the applications of Roelfsema's results for another setting of the model.

Keywords: Strategic delegation, The race to the bottom
