The Kuznets curve and the effect of international regulations on environmental efficiency

Barış Yörük () and Osman Zaim ()

Economics Bulletin, 2006, vol. 17, issue 1, 1-7

Abstract: This paper extends the results of series of papers, i.e., Zaim (2004) and Yörük and Zaim (2005a, 2005b). We construct an environmental efficiency index for OECD countries and establish an environmental Kuznets curve relationship between environmental efficiency and income. We then investigate the effect of an international protocol on reducing global emissions on the environmental efficiency.
