Environmental taxation ...

Die Europäische Gemeinschaft wurde in der Überzeugung gegründet, dass wirtschaftliche Integration zu Frieden und wirtschaftlichem Wohlstand führt. Der Handel ist heute daher ein grundlegender Teil der Identität der Europäischen Union (EU). Angesichts des Erfolgs des Binnenmarkts bei der Förderung der längsten Friedensperiode in der europäischen Zeitgeschichte betrachtet sich die EU als ein Beispiel für den Nutzen von Handel, Globalisierung und wirtschaftlicher Öffnung. Die internationale Handelspolitik ...
