Wir untersuchen die gleichgewichtige Entwicklung der Umweltqualität in einem endogenen Wachstumsmodell, wobei die Umweltverschmutzung durch die Güterproduktion verursacht und durch Umweltschutzausgaben verringert wird. Nehmen die Wirtschaftssubjekte nur einen Teil ihres individuellen Ein- flusses auf die Umweltqualität wahr, dann sind das gleichgewichtige Verschmutzungsniveau sowie die gleichgewichtigeWachstumsrate suboptimal hoch. Verbessert sich jedoch die Umweltwahrnehmung im Zuge des Wachstumsprozesses, wie beispielsweise durch vermehrte Umweltbildung, dann konvergiert die Ökonomie gegen den Paretoñoptimalen Wachstumpfad, und langfristig wird auch die Paretoñoptimale Umweltqualität realisiert. Im Gegensatz dazu verbleibt das Verschmutzungsniveau auf suboptimal hohem Niveau, wenn die Umweltwahrnehmung durch die Umweltqualität selbst determiniert ist, das heiflt die Sensibilit‰t f¸r die Zusammenhänge individueller Aktivitäten und aggregierter Verschmutzung durch zunehmende Umweltverschmutzung ge- fördert wird.
