Distinction Consumption vs. Production Externality[edit]

The distinction between consumption vs. production externalities should be made in the article. This seems to be an aspect of externalities that is often overlooked but has significant implications on government interventions and overall welfare of society. Since the issue is not yet very popular, it is quite difficult to find good sources. The following website could be a good start in my opinion: Microeconomics - Externalities. Where should this part be added, what do you think? (Econ404 (talk) 18:58, 20 November 2014 (UTC))

Construction of an airport - bad example[edit]

While the construction of an airport can have a lot of positive effects on a local economy, it could also have negative effects on the local community due to increased noise and a slight increase in risk. Perhaps a better example might be used. Flanker235 (talk) 22:14, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Dr. Ioannides's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Ioannides has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


This entry ignores the important contribution to economists' understanding of the urban economy, which is replete with externalities. It also ignores the roles of pecuniary externalities in the theory of monopolistic competition and its properties. It does even link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecuniary_externality


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.

We believe Dr. Ioannides has expertise on the topic of this article, since he has published relevant scholarly research:
