On Cleaner Technologies in a Transboundary Pollution Game

Hassan Benchekroun () and Amrita Ray Chaudhuri ()

No 2009-23, Discussion Paper from Tilburg University, Center for Economic Research

Abstract: We show that in a non-cooperative transboundary pollution game, a cleaner technology (i.e., a decrease in the emission to output ratio) induces each country to increase its emissions and ultimately can yield a higher level of pollution and reduce social welfare.
