Beyond the Environmental Kuznets Curve: Diffusion of Sulfur-Emissions-Abating Technology

Stern, David


The environmental Kuznets curve (EKc) has been extensively criticized on theoretical and empirical grounds. In this article, the EKC is reformulated as the best practice technology frontier-countries' distances from the frontier reflect the degree to which they have adopted the best practice technology in emissions abatement. The Kalman filter is used to model the state of sulfur emissions abatement technology in a panel of 15 mainly developed countries. The results are used to determine...[Show more]
