International Trade and Environmental Quality: How Important Are the Linkages?
This paper develops a numerical general equilibrium model of the world economy with local and global environmental externalities. The model is then used to investigate the relationship between trade and the environment. The authors' results suggest that international trade has little impact on environmental quality. Furthermore, the magnitude of the welfare effects of environmental policies is not significantly affected by changes in trade policies. At the same time, the size and distribution of the gains from trade liberalization appear to be little affected by changes in environmental policies.
