On the Theory of By-Production of Emissions
AbstractWe identify the disposability properties of a production technology resulting from the simultaneous play of nature's emission-generating mechanism and the firm's intended production activities. Our axioms define a "by-production" technology (BPT), which has a novel functional representation and can be decomposed into a standard neo-classical intended-production technology and a nature's emission generation set.
