The report assesses the extent to which a variety of federal tax subsidies to extractive industries affect the flow of materials from competing secondary materials industries. The impacts of tax subsidies on virgin material supply curves and prices for the steel, paper, lead, copper, and aluminum industries are analyzed. Flows of virgin and secondary materials are characterized at points where these substitute as inputs to production and consumption processes. The econometric models specified at the points of substitution are used to analyze the impacts of the tax subsidies on the quantities of secondary materials recycled.
