Abstract: This study applies bootstrap panel Granger causality methods to investigate the relationship between CO2 emissions and economic growth using data from 12 Asian countries over the period of 1965-2010. Both real GDP per capita and CO2 emissions data are used in this study. Empirical results indicate that one-way Granger causality running from CO2 emissions to economic growth for Pakistan, one-way Granger causality running from economic growth to CO2 emissions for India and Japan, a bi-directional causality for Thailand and Vietnam and neutrality for the remaining 7 countries (i.e., China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan). Our results have important policy implications for the 12 Asian countries under study.
