  1. (20 points) Water sold in small plastic bottles produces waste that contaminates the environment.  Suppose the U.S. government passed strict new laws that levied special taxes on water sold in plastic bottles.  One country, Fiji, has a comparative advantage in producing bottled water, much of which is consumed in the U.S. As a trade economist, what is your perspective on the impact of this law on the U.S. and on Fiji?  Thinking beyond trade issues, what is your economic perspective on the law?
