Indicator of pollution terms of trade

This indicator proposed by Jean-Marie Grether and Nicole A. Mathys is the ratio between the amount of pollution content per dollar of exports and the amount of pollution content per dollar of imports.

It allows identifying the countries serving the most as "pollution havens", the weak regulation countries which tend to export “dirty” goods and to import "clean" goods, more frequently located in developing countries.
