This paper provides the underlying scenarios or experiments that were used to consider various environmental stresses produced from solid wastes. These experiments are based on the formation of various Pacific Economic Communities (PECs) by countries around the rim of the Pacific Basin. Of the seven unions that have been evaluated to-date, four are discussed in this paper.
These comprise various combinations of Australia, New
Zealand, Japan, East and South East Asia, China and North
America. From the simulations conducted, it appears that
the community which contains Australia, New Zealand, Japan
and East and South East Asia benefits all these regions the
most. After discussing the effects on all regions at the
macro level, the paper focuses on the domestic and trade
effects of PECs on Australia and New Zealand.
