Types of Political Economy, Regulatory Regimes, and the Environment
This chapter examines the national differences in reducing environmental threats in nineteenth rich democracies. The available data suggest that types of political economy and public policies are important in explaining national differences in air quality, occupational health and safety, nuclear energy development and safety, and rehabilitation of the handicapped but less important in explaining different rates of reduction in addiction to smoking. This chapter explains that for all these five areas of environmental threat and policy response, the story since the early 1970s has been the same.
