Greenhouse-Gas Emission Controls In An Open Economy

Abstract

To examine how greenhouse-gas emission controls affect a country's industrial and trade structures, this article presents an open economy model that has both Ricardian and Heckscher-Ohlin features. We specifically compare emission quotas, emission taxes, and emission standards. The patterns of production and trade critically hinge on those policy tools. It is shown that a domestic emission control may lead to carbon leakage and may not reduce the world emissions, and that emission standards may work as a "hidden" production subsidy toward an emission-intensive industry.
