„When I talk to people about how to design a carbon price, I think the model is British Columbia. You raise electricity prices by $100 a year, but then the government gives back a dividend that lowers internet prices by $100 year. In real terms, you’re raising the price of carbon goods but lowering the prices of non-carbon-intensive goods.“

—  William D. Nordhaus, "After Nobel in Economics, William Nordhaus Talks About Who’s Getting His Pollution-Tax Ideas Right: A few governments — notably, parts of Canada and South Korea — have adapted his ideas in ways that frame them as a financial windfall for taxpayers." https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/13/climate/nordhaus-carbon-tax-interview.html The New York Times.

„People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.“

—  Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations
The Wealth of Nations (1776), Book I, Context: People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty or justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary. Chapter X, Part II, p. 152.
