Registered author(s):

    La hipótesis de la curva ambiental de Kuznets (EKC) sugiere que la relación entre el desarrollo económico de un país y la contaminación ambiental tiene la forma de una curva U-invertida. Según esta hipótesis, los países con nivel de desarrollo económico bajos tienden a incrementar sus emisiones de contaminantes hasta alcanzar un punto de desarrollo en el cual la contaminación comienza a ser demandada por los individuos. De esta forma, cuando los países alcanzan niveles de desarrollo relativamente altos, los niveles de contaminación comienzan a decrecer.
