Pulp and Paper Demands of an Urbanized Society
Abstract:U. S. per capita consumption of paper and paperboard is not only the highest in the world, but is more than 40 percent higher than the next country, Sweden, and more than double that of the United Kingdom and West Germany. These levels of demand can be correlated primarily with levels of income, but are also influenced by relative prices and consumer tastes. Extrapolations of past consumption trends into the future are likely to be modified by: (1) shifts in consumer preferences resulting from increased awareness of the material consequences of affluence on the environment; and (2) the effect on supply of the value judgements made by governments in dealing with solid waste.
