Saving Energy, Growing Jobs
How Environmental Protection Promotes Economic Growth, Profitability, Innovation, and CompetitionUnknown - 2007
The idea that we must choose between a healthy environment and a healthy economy is a myth, says David Goldstein. Not only do well-conceived environmental regulations create more jobs, in the long run they contribute to more efficient designs and less expensive products. Standing between us and a cleaner, more prosperous society is the resistance of economic incumbents and a misplaced ideological opposition to any kind of regulation, even though it might prove beneficial.
