Summary
Product durability is not necessarily independent of market structure and firms will not minimize their production costs of providing service when emissions taxes are in place. This is because emissions or excise taxes are determined by output levels, hence affecting marginal production decisions. In contrast, profit taxes have no effect on marginal production decisions. Another significant assumption is that the second-best optimal tax on imperfectly competitive businesses may not be less than the tax assessed on a competitive firm, an indication that the tax exerts a significant influence on the product durability choice of an imperfectly competitive firm.
