dc.descriptionThe paper estimates the link between aggregate income and carbon dioxide emissions for the Dominican Republic. The econometric analysis uses time series data spanning half a century and finds evidence of an environmental Kuznets curve revealing that the level of annual real per capita income at which carbon dioxide emissions start to stabilise is around US$1,600. The estimations support evidence in the literature revealing that the curve has been flattening and shifting to the left. en-US
dc.descriptionLa investigación estima la relación entre el ingreso agregado y las emisiones de dióxido de carbono para la República Dominicana. El análisis econométrico emplea series estadísticas que abarcan medio siglo y produce evidencia sobre la curva de Kuznets para el medio ambiente natural, mostrando que el nivel de ingreso per cápita anual alrededor del cual las emisiones de dióxido de carbono se estabilizan es US$1,600. Las estimaciones contribuyen con la literatura que sugiere la existencia de una curva de Kuznets más plana y desplazada hacia la izquierda.es-ES
