Sustainable Economics and the EPA Sustainable or ecological economics is at the forefront of the movement toward economic growth and  simultaneous environmental protection or a "green" economy. Critics of "green" initiatives often point to the U.S.  Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regulations as bad for the economy and responsible for plant  closures, job losses, and/or costs that hinder industry's ability to remain competitive in the global economy.  Research the EPA's effect on the economy over the years. Post to the discussion forum your findings on the 3  talking points below. Provide actual industry examples illustrating or supporting your conclusions that EPA  regulation has or has not historically been a significant factor in: 1) Plant closures, 2) Job losses, and 3)  Industry lost competitive advantage.  Resources: Do the following internet searches: "EPA+plant closure", "EPA+job losses", and "EPA+competitive  advantage" to find supporting articles or documents to reference in your post.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
