These services do not provide goods to ultimate consumers. I t is wrong to count the whole of government activity as a net contribution to national income. To this a fourth class can be added. 4. The expenditure on measures that compensate or restore the losses of environmental functions (see Section 2) or prevent losses environmental functions from occurring. These expenditures are as intermediate deliveries insofar as the measures are of entered taken and directly paid for by private firms, but as final consumption when the measures are paid for by private households or the government and 50 also when they are taken by private firms imposed by the government.

This expenditure, which only re-establishes or maintains environmental functions that would remain available without the negative impact of our activities on the environment, leading to an overestimation is wrongly entered as value added, of the increase in national income thus and concealing what is going on in the environment: loss is not written off, restoration is written up. On the one hand, such a correction would be a step forward, as it would partly solve the well-known problem of double counting or asymmetric booking (see above) and provide more information about the relation between production and environment.

In fact, there is a spectrum of options for environmental accounting. These will be discussed briefly, starting, more or less, from those measures that make modest or little demands on existing national accounting systems to those that would entail major changes in the existing structure. 1. Identification of environmental expenditures In principle, both expenditures to clean up the environment and expenditures to "defend" against environmental insult are already covered in the conventional accounts, but they may not be identified as such.
