Does Plant Ownership Affect the level of Pollution Abatement Expenditure?
AbstractThis paper considers a number of hypotheses. Primarily amongst them is the notion that foreign owned plants spend more on pollution abatement than domestically owned plants after controlling for productive efficiency and cognisant of the prevailing regulatory regime. In essence, this study directly estimates the influence of ownership and efficiency characteristics in firms' decisions regarding whether to spend or not on pollution control and how much to spend.
