ВРП и загрязнение окружающей среды в регионах России: пространственно-эконометрический анализ

GRP and environmental pollution in the Russian regions: spatial econometric analysis

The paper provides empirical estimation of the relationship between per capita income and per capita pollutant emissions in Russian regions taking into account their spatial interdependence. I show that the pollutant emissions in the Russian regions are spatially autocorrelated.    The estimation results confirm an inverted U-shaped  relationship between  per capita income and per capita polution at the regional level. The estimates of the income turning point suggest that most Russian regions are on an increasing part of the environmental Kuznets curve, i.e., an increase in GRP is associated with higher pollution levels.
