  • We begin with two fairly obvious points. First, not surprisingly, for both of the maquiladoras, the health damages (whether measured in number of cases or in dollars) from uncontrolled emissions are considerably higher than for controlled emissions. For the iron foundry, damages are approximately 17 times as high for uncontrolled emissions as for controlled emissions. For the chemical plant, they are approximately 50 times as high. Thus, it bears emphasis that the magnitude of the health damages from maquiladora emissions depends critically on the level of emissions abatement.

  • More recently, Granger (1986) and Johansen and Juselius (1990) proposed to determine the existence of long-term equilibrium among selected variables through cointegration analysis, paving the way for a (by now) preferred approach to examining the economic variables-stock markets relationship. A set of time-series variables are cointegrated if they are integrated of the same order and a linear combination of them is stationary. Such linear combinations would then point to the existence of a long-term relationship between the variables.

  • As the financial system in most emerging economies is centred on banks, an important aspect of the development of bond markets is the impact on the banking system.
