Childrens environmental health, education, and economic development
This article aims at investigating the interplay between environmental quality, health, and economic development in a unified OLG framework. Human capital accumulation depends on the environment through its impact on children's health and workers' productivity. In turn, environmental quality dynamics rely upon human capital that determines maintenance efforts. This two-way relationship generates a co-evolution of human capital and environmental quality in the long run. Along the transition path, the dynamic interactions between economic and environmental spheres allow for replicating two different trajectories: some economies experiment an Environmental Kuznets Curve while some others are caught into the environmental poverty trap.
