Small Manufacturing Plants, Pollution, and Poverty: New Evidence from Brazil and Mexico

Small Manufacturing Plants, Pollution, and Poverty: New Evidence from Brazil and Mexico

Susmita Dasgupta, Robert E.B. Lucas and David Wheeler (1998). Policy Research Working Paper No. 2029, The World Bank, Washington DC

The authors use new data from Brazil and Mexico to analyze relationships linking economic development, the size distribution of manufacturing plants, and exposure to industrial pollution. The risk of mortality from industrial air pollution is much higher in the top two income deciles among Brazil's municipalities and the great majority of projected deaths is attributable to emissions from large plants.
