This paper evaluates the effects of China’s industrial SO 2 emissions trading pilot scheme (SETPS) on the pollution abatement costs (PAC) from the past and future perspective. We apply the kernel-based propensity score difference-in-difference method to examine the effects of SETPS on the average pollution abatement costs (APAC) and the marginal pollution abatement costs (MPAC) based on the environment data from the industrial sector of 29 provinces in China over the period of 1998 to 2011. Our…

Can Marketization of Environmental Governance Improve Public Health?—Empirical Analysis Based on the Emission Trading System

A binary logit-based difference-in-difference model is constructed to investigate the effects of the emission trading system (ETS) pilot policy on public health measured by the incidence of respiratory diseases, heart disease, and other diseases and shows that the health-improving effects of ETS are not as expected.
