Trade in pollutive industries and the stringency of environmental regulations

Trade in pollutive industries and the stringency of environmental regulations This article analyses the impact of trade in pollution-intensive industries on the stringency of environmental regulation. Using system Generalized Method of Moments (GMM) regressions for a panel of 92 countries and the period 1998 to 2007, we find that an increase in net exports of pollution-intensive goods leads to a lowering of the stringency of environmental regulations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Applied Economics Letters Taylor & Francis

Abstract

This article analyses the impact of trade in pollution-intensive industries on the stringency of environmental regulation. Using system Generalized Method of Moments (GMM) regressions for a panel of 92 countries and the period 1998 to 2007, we find that an increase in net exports of pollution-intensive goods leads to a lowering of the stringency of environmental regulations.
