Does an environmental Kuznets curve for waste pollution exist in China?
Kaneko, Shinji, Managi, Shunsuke, Fujii, Hidemichi, & Tsurumi, Tetsuya (2009) Does an environmental Kuznets curve for waste pollution exist in China? International Journal of Global Environmental Issues, 9(1/2), pp. 4-19.
China is an emerging and leading world economy. The pace of economic change has been tremendously rapid since the beginning of economic reforms. Despite the importance of the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) and environmental problems in China, no previous study has tested the EKC in China because of the difficulty in obtaining data and the need to adjust the data. The focus of this paper is to test the EKC in China using province level data over the period 1992-2003. This study applies non-parametric techniques to estimate the relationship between income and the environmental quality of wastewater, air pollution and solid waste.
