Title:Long-run determinants of pollution: A robustness analysis PDF Logo
Authors:Lamla, Michael J.

Series/Report no.:KOF working papers // Konjunkturforschungsstelle, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich 164
Abstract:This paper examines how robust economic, political, and demographic variables are related to water and air pollution. Employing Bayesian Averaging of Classical Estimates (BACE) for a cross section of up to 74 countries, 33 variables and 3 proxies for air and water pollution over a period from 1980 to 1995 we confirm the Environmental Kuznets Curve hypothesis, highlight the relevance of efficient production technologies and underline the role of political and demographic variables.
