This chapter presents some concluding remarks about the economic models presented in Chapters 2 to 5. An endogenous growth model was presented with public capital and pollution. The uniqueness of this approach compared to the literature on environmental pollution and endogenous growth is the assumption that pollution only affects the utility of the household and not production possibilities directly. Analyses of the model demonstrated the effects of fiscal policy on the long-run balanced growth rate. Variations in both the income tax rate and the pollution tax rate were also shown to have either positive or negative growth effects.
