    A Pigovian tax (also spelled Pigouvian tax) is a tax on any market activity that generates negative externalities (costs not included in the market price). The tax is intended to correct an undesirable or inefficient market outcome (a market failure), and does so by being set equal to the social cost of the negative externalities. Social cost include private cost and external cost. WELFARE. ECONOMICS AND THE ENVIRONMENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES learn about the concepts of efficiency and optimality in allocation derive the conditions that are necessary for the realization of an efficient allocation find out about the circumstances in which a system of markets will allocate efficiently learn about market failure and the basis for government intervention to correct it .
