Abstract
This paper involves the argument of whether environmental
control measures have a significant effect on the pattern of
trade. We estimate pollution loadings of Korean trade and relative
impact indices of the Korean industries to analyze how
vulnerable Korean competitiveness in the international market
is to increased environmental costs. The results show that in
Korea pollution control charges are approximately trade-neutral
in the aggregate, while they have substantial. effects on the
pattern of trade at the industry level. These are consistent with
other studies in the sense that pollution controls do affect the
comparative advantage in each country.
