    Abstract

    Environmental policy questions have been recently tied to the fast evolving literature on Environmental Kuznets Curves (EKCs). The EKC thesis advocates the existence of a U-inverse relationship between economic growth and environmental quality. This paper adopts a recent view that EKCs should be studied using individual country experiences and looks at the evolution of air pollution, agricultural pollution, fisheries depletion and forest destruction in Greece during the last two to three decades. The evidence indicates that either EKCs do not exist, or Greece is on the rising segment of a hypothetical EKC. Greece's entrance to the EU, however, has helped it identify environmental externalities and resource depletion problems.
