Pigou Club

The economists who publicly advocated the taxes such as Carbon Tax and Gasoline Tax came together and created a club which is known as Pigou Club. The term comes from the name of an economist Arthur Cecil Pigou and is known as Pigovian tax which is levied to correct the negative externalities (negative side-effects) of a market activity. The idea of the club members is called Green Shift or Eco Tax.
