Consistency and Optimality in a Dynamic Game of Pollution Control I: Competition

Amitrajeet Batabyal ()

Working Papers from Utah State University, Department of Economics

Abstract: I model the interaction between a regulator and polluting firms as a Stackelberg differential game in which the regulator leads. The firms create pollution, which results in a stock externality. I analyze the intertemporal effects of alternate pollution control measures in a competitive industry. The principal issue here concerns the dynamic inconsistency of the optimal solution. Inter alia, I compare the steady state levels of pollution under optimal and under time consistent policies.
