Employment and Environmental Protection: The Tradeoffs in an Economy in Transition

Abstract

One of the most pressing problems in an economy in transition is that of unemployment. Hitherto the 'costs' of this unemployment have either focused on the value of the lost production or on the costs to the government of supporting the unemployed. From a social viewpoint this is inappropriate. In this paper we discuss the costs of unemployment in terms of their impacts on human welfare, particularly the health effects.
