Title:
Pollution Mitigation and Productivity: Evidence from Chinese Manufacturing Firms
 
Abstract:
The economies of many developing countries have experienced huge transformations over the past 20 years, but a major cost of development has been air and water pollution. As these countries have become wealthier, pollution reduction has become a priority of their governments. Our study is among the first to combine firm-level panel data sets on industrial production, power plant investment in environmental mitigation technologies, and air and water pollution discharges. Our study has two goals. First, we seek to evaluate whether policies in developing countries to lower pollution have been successful. Second, we seek to quantify the productivity and distributional costs of these policies.
