This trend raises various health and environmental issues, as well as moral concerns regarding farm animal welfare. In this paper, we discuss the regulation of meat consumption in developed countries. Specifically, we discuss possible justifications for this regulation in terms of environmental, health and animal welfare considerations, as well as the effect of fiscal, informational and behavioral regulatory instruments. Finally, we present a list of challenges that policy makers and food scholars may need to confront in the future.Keywords: Meat consumption; Regulation; Health; Environment; Climate change; Animal welfare (search for similar items in EconPapers)JEL-codes: H31 Q11 Q52 (search for similar items in EconPapers)Date: 2021-01-23New Economics Papers: this item is included in nep-agr and nep-envReferences: View references in EconPapers View complete reference list from CitEc Citations: Track citations by RSS feedDownloads: (external link) -fr.eu/sites/default/files/TSE/docu ... 2021/wp_tse_1180.pdf Full Text (application/pdf)Related works:Journal Article: Viewpoint: Regulating meat consumption to improve health, the environment and animal welfare (2020) Working Paper: Viewpoint: Regulating meat consumption to improve health, the environment and animal welfare (2020) This item may be available elsewhere in EconPapers: Search for items with the same title.Export reference: BibTeX RIS (EndNote, ProCite, RefMan) HTML/TextPersistent link: :tse:wpaper:125173Access Statistics for this paperMore papers in TSE Working Papers from Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) Contact information at EDIRC.Bibliographic data for series maintained by (Obfuscate( 'tse-fr.eu', 'com' )). var addthis_config = "data_track_clickback":true; var addthis_share = url:" :tse:wpaper:125173"Share This site is part of RePEc and all the data displayed here is part of the RePEc data set.
