Defending the Public Domain: Pollution, Subsidies, and Poverty
Paul H. Templet (au)
In recent decades, industry has come under criticism for failing to cover the environmental costs of doing business. When companies are allowed to pollute, or to use natural resources without paying their full price, they are in effect appropriating natural capital -- land, air, & water -- without compensation to society at large. Economists have paid a good deal of attention to the inefficiencies that result when companies pass on, or “externalize,” production costs in the form of environmental damage. But few have looked at the broader effects of externalities on public welfare, particularly on the distr. of wealth. This research suggests that externalities are an important force behind economic inequality & poverty in the U.S. Charts & tables.
