Productivity analysis with CO2 emissions in Japan
Nakano, Makiko & Managi, Shunsuke (2010) Productivity analysis with CO2 emissions in Japan. Pacific Economic Review, 15(5), pp. 708-718.
This article measures Japanese prefectures' productivity from 1991 to 2002, taking CO2 emissions into consideration, and examines the factors that impact on productivity. We use the data envelopment analysis and measure the Luenberger productivity indicator, incorporating CO2 emissions in the analysis. Our results show that productivity was decreasing during the period of investigation. According to the results of the generalized method of moment estimation, the operations rate, the share of the energy intensive industries and social capital significantly impact on productivity.
