An analysis of the trade of recovered paper : new trade theory, comparative advantage, and pollution haven effects

by Fowlkes, Annina Bailey

Abstract

This paper examines the exchange of recovered paper in the context of determining the main forces that drive countries to import recovered paper. The theories tested to determine the relevant forces are comparative advantage, new trade theory, and pollution haven effects. Data is collected for 59 countries, and five different regressions are preformed to test model on complete dataset and portions segmented by income and geographic region. It is determined that the import of recovered paper is based upon new trade theory as well as comparative advantage, with little differences between the five regressions. Additionally, no pollution haven effects are observed.
