Competitiveness and environmental policies for agriculture: testing the Porter hypothesis



Competitiveness and environmental policies for agriculture: testing the Porter hypothesis



International Journal of Agricultural Resources, Governance and Ecology 3(3/4): 310-324



Porter hypothesis suggests tougher environmental regulations could spur technological growth, leading to an increase in productivity of market outputs, simultaneously providing greater environmental protection. This study tests the Porter hypothesis in US agriculture using state level data from 1973 through 1996. Luenberger productivity indexes, which are dual to the profit function and do not require the choice of input-output orientation, are measured with and without environmental factors.
