Why Does Chile Have Such Bad Air Pollution?

Carlos Chavez is a professor of economics at the School of Business and Economics at Universidad de Talca in Central Chile. His research focuses on the use of wood-burning heating stoves in Chile and government policies that could reduce the prevalence of wood-burning stoves and improve air quality.  He discusses why so many people in Chile heat their homes this way and how he was able to create a research project that suggests some effective policy remedies.
