Economic Openness and Green GDP, John Talberth and Alok Bohara.

Using green GDP measures such as the Genuine Progress Indicator and Index of Sustainable Economic Welfare we demonstrated that contrary to the preponderance of econometric studies in the literature, economic openness (globalization) has a detrimental effect on welfare when the volume of trade exceeds a certain threshold. The paper was recently published in Ecological Economics.
