Optimal Versus Sustainable Degrowth Policies
Ecological Economics, 2017, vol. 136, issue C, 266-281
This paper introduces a natural resource and pollution in a Ramsey growth model which relies on the postulates of ecological economics. It studies the impact of voluntary degrowth policies on production and welfare. The instrument of these policies is a tax on the natural resource. These public policies are implemented after the downturn of the households' welfare following from the increased pollution.
