Trade and Environment

H. Siebert


Additional Information

Book Details


This book analyzes the relationship of environmental quality, environmental policy and international trade. Environmental quality management will redefine comparative advantage of pollution-intensively producing sectors and will affect trade flows, the balance of payments and sectoral structure in industrialized nations as well as in developing countries. Since pollution-intensively producing sectors are also energy-intensive and belong to the so-called basic industries, we can expect that the issue will be of political interest in the next decades.
