The Hidden Cost of Pollution

Titre:
The Hidden Cost of Pollution
Description:

Everyone knows that pollution is bad. But new economics research now shows it’s even worse than we thought—pollution is making us sick and stupid!

Professor Alex Tabarrok overviews recent research that examines how pollution negatively affects employment, IQ, productivity, and health.

This also means that driving pollution down has even more benefits than we previously thought.
