Modelling the link between aggregate income and carbon dioxide emissions in developing countries: The case of the Dominican Republic

José Sánchez-Fung

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper estimates the link between aggregate income and carbon dioxide emissions for the Dominican Republic. The econometric analysis finds evidence of an environmental Kuznets curve revealing that the level of annual real per capita income at which carbon dioxide emissions start to stabilise is around US$1,600. The estimations support evidence in the literature revealing that the curve has been flattening and shifting to the left.
