Commercio Internazionale E Ambiente: Un’Analisi A Livello Provinciale
By using Italian provincial level data, this paper aims to examine the effects of environmental regulation on international trade flows. The empirical analysis has been organized into two steps. Firstly, we have classified the manufacturing sectors in "clean" and "dirty" according to their air emissions. Secondly we have identified the kind of productive specialization in these sectors of each province. The econometric analysis - executed by using data panel technique - has highlighted that a stricter environmental regulation determines a loss of competitiveness in the production of the pollution intensive goods and, as consequence, an increase of imports from foreign countries. In this way we support the evidence of “pollution haven hypothesis” at decentralized level.
