ABSTRACT
Nowadays, China was suffering great pressure from international society to reduce its CO2emissions. One potential option is to introduce a carbon tax into China's tax system, which may promote enterprises to reduce their 2emissions but also undermine China's economy and result in living cost increasing. Through analyzing and comparing the positive and negative impacts of the carbon tax policy, this paper seeks to figure out whether a carbon tax is worthy to be adopted. It then turns to discuss what types of carbon tax are more suitable for China's economy promotion and environment protection from a cost-benefit perspective.
