Introduction to the environmental Kuznets curve special issue
AbstractThis special issue is concerned with environmental Kuznets curves (EKC) - the hypothesis that there is an inverted-U relationship between various indicators of environmental degradation and levels of per capita income. Explanations as to why environmental degradation should first increase then decline with income have focused on a number of underlying relationships, including:the effects of structural economic change on the use of the environment for resource inputs and to assimilate waste;the link between the demand for environmental quality and income;types of environmental degradation and ecological processes.
