This is a theoretical study of the relationship between international trade policies and environment policy, which has become a major theme in international policy disputes. Rauscher investigates whether free trade and globalizing markets are bad for the environment, or whether environmental policies can be used to improve international competitiveness. He also examines the political use of lax environmental regulation to help domestic producers.
