The Contribution of U.S. Investment ot Environmental Pollution and Health Impacts: A Case Study

Presenter: Perry Gottesfeld

U.S. corporate investment is often welcomed by countries looking to expand markets, modernize antiquated facilities, create jobs, and improve productivity.  However, disappointment often follows as companies continue to pollute the local environment.  Companies also face criticism at home for not meeting U.S. standards for emissions and occupational helath and safety.  This talk will explore two case studies of U.S. investments in Peru and Mexico that have impacted environmental and public health.
