For example, suppose Upstream pollutes the water of Downstream with pollution damages being $20,000. If those damages could be eliminated for $10,000, it would be in the interest of Introduction 7 Downstream to offer something between those two figures, say $15,000, to eliminate the damages and it would be in the interest of Upstream to accept that offer. Downstream is better off by $5,000 (paying $15,000 to avoid ­receiving $20,000 in damages) and Upstream is also $5,000 better off (receiving $15,000 to incur the $10,000 cost of cleaning up).

If a damaged party overstates damages greatly, it might lose credibility. Moreover, the damaging party has an incentive to provide alternative, presumably lower, damage estimates. The actual determination of damages might well be more informed than would be the case if a government bureaucrat with no strong direct interest were assigned the task of setting a pollution tax to internalize the externality.
