The Clean Air Act and the U.S. Economy: Final Report of Results and Findings

A study of the costs imposed by the Clean Air Act on economic performance and welfare. The analysis is based on the application of mulit-sector, inter-temporal, general equilibrium model of the United States Economy. The goals are to establish how the economy might have evolved had there been no Clean Air Act and to provide a measure of the welfare loss associated with the costs of compliance.
