Trade, Environment and Comparative Advantage

  • Ingo Walter
Part of the Problems of Economic Integration book series


Our discussion of the international aspects of environmental management has thus far focused exclusively on short-run competitive considerations, both in the aggregate and in terms of their differential impact on individual firms and industries. The emphasis was on pollution control as a disturbance to international competitive relationships, which tends to generate certain adjustment costs for the various economies involved and which promotes a reallocation of productive factors, both nationally and internationally.
