Yaofu Ouyang and
Energy Economics, 2018, vol. 71, issue C, 238-252
This paper studies the endogenous relationships among financial development, energy consumption, and economic growth in China by applying a GMM panel VAR approach with a panel data of 30 Chinese provinces over the period 1996Q1–2015Q4. Financial development is measured by six individual indicators and by a comprehensive indicator obtained through the PCA method. We also account for regional heterogeneity by dividing our sample into three regions: eastern region, central region, and western region.
