Those supporting an increase in the standards often cite energy security & environmental benefits that would result from improved fuel economy. Those opposed to raising the standards often cite decreased auto safety, which they contend could result from producing smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles.

This study looks at whether improvements in efficiency could bring gains in outcomes.Two chapters use world panel data to analyze country level efficiency in improving education, health and GDP (and thereby poverty) indicators. Two other chapters use province and state level data to analyze within-country efficiency in Argentina and Mexico for impro
