Abstract

This paper employs a mobile capital version of the Harris-Todaro model to analyze the backward incidence of pollution abatement policies on some key variables of interest. Among other things, we show that national income may fall as a result of stronger pollution controls. However, more restrictive pollution controls cause the urban rate of unemployment to fall unambiguously.
