ESM 204 Evaluating Regulatory Efficiency Your group project’s client is the St. Louis Air Quality Management District. They are considering revising their air pollution regulations in order to make industry in the city more competitive and thus keep jobs from leaving town. Your task is to estimate the costs of several regulatory options and report on your findings, recommending steps that can be taken. You should write a one-page memo to policymakers summarizing your findings. You should also attach an appendix, detailing your analysis. You find an old source document in the library, from a study done in the early 1970's. (You probably don't need to look at the whole EPA report, but if you want, see " A Cost Evaluation of Alternative Air Quality Control Strategies ".) The report does have good data on control costs and atmospheric transport. See Table 1 , Figure 1 and the transfer matrix . You may also wish to refer to pages 171-4 (in Chapter 9) of Kolstad, Environmental Economics , which summarizes a paper by Atkinson and Tietenberg
