Consumers end up paying the socially efficient price which includes the external benefit. Government subsidies inevitably carry an opportunity cost and in the long run there might be better ways of providing financial support to producers and workers in specific industries. It also helps improve public health. State-Level Model Policymakers generally have supported market-based mechanisms for addressing environmental externalities, such as carbon pollution, but the problem of coordinating various jurisdictions can quickly hamper implementation.
