Politique environnementale et ajustements aux frontières en présence de concurrence imparfaite

In a two-region model of bilateral trade with global pollution, we study how the unilateral implementation of emissions taxes affects the region. To offset the decrease in its industry?s competitiveness, the regulator of the region may implement borders adjustments such as export subsidies or import taxes. We study the interaction between environmental policy instruments and border adjustments highlighting the role played by market structures and imperfect competition. Classification JEL?: F12?; F18?; H2?; Q2.
