Pollution And The Struggle For The World Product: Multinational Corporations, Environment, And International Comparative Advantage
Pollution And The Struggle For The World Product: Multinational Corporations, Environment, And International Comparative Advantage
By H. Jeffrey Leonard
Cambridge University Press, 1988, 254 pp.

This excellent study begins with a close examination of the limited evidence that pollution controls are driving American industry abroad. It then moves to an enlightening study of how three industrializing countries-Ireland, Spain and Mexico-have handled the pollution issue (Romania is also looked at but the material is thin). In a rapidly changing field, Mr. Leonard of the Conservative Foundation has found much material of great interest and analyzed it very judiciously.
