Green Informants

Should electronics manufacturers test competitor’s products for hazardous materials compliance? This question is investigated in the paper Green Production through Competitive Testing by E. Plambeck and T.A. Taylor, which can be found here. The rationale would be that a detected violation disclosed to regulators could then lead to blockage of the competitor’s products. The paper models this scenario from an economics angle and includes results from numerical experiments. Added to References.
