Lorsqu’un pays se développe, les inégalités s’accroissent dans un premier temps puis elles diminuent. Cette relation, nommé courbe de Kuznets en U renversé. Nous montrons que le capital humain des pays suit une courbe en U inversée, sorte de courbe de Kuznets du capital humain. De plus, la courbe de Kuznets de .

Instead, we get a more realistic view of the effect of economic growth and technological changes on environmental quality.

The hypothesis was first advanced by economist Simon Kuznets in the s and ’60s. Christian Morrisson 1 Fabrice Murtin 2, 3, 4 Details.
Retrieved 17 December Saturday, July 23, – 2: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It explains the negative cross-country correlation between Mincerian returns to schooling and average schooling contrary to other functional forms. American Economic Review 45 March: Economic inequality Economics curves Environmental economics Environmental social science concepts.
This shift would not benefit low-skill workers as much. Palma goes on to note that, among middle-income countries, only those in Latin America and Southern Africa live in an inequality league of their own.
Please note that corrections may take a couple of weeks to filter through the various RePEc services. At least one critic argues that the US is still struggling to attain the income level necessary to prioritize certain environmental pollutants such as carbon emissions, which have yet to follow the EKC. There have been mixed findings with this idea — some developing countries have experienced greater inequality, less inequality, or no difference at all, due to trade liberalization.
For instance, many of the middle income countries used in Kuznets’ data set were in Latin America, a region with historically high levels of inequality. However, in rapidly growing middle income countries the scale effect, which increases pollution and other degradation, overwhelms the coirbe effect.
Regarding the empirical evidence, based on large panels of countries or time series approaches, Fields considers the Kuznets hypothesis refuted. It seems that most indicators of environmental degradation are monotonically rising in income though the ‘ income elasticity ‘ is less ocurbe one and is not a simple function of income alone.
Oxford Economic Papers 46 October: Critics of the Kuznets curve theory argue that its U-shape comes kuzznets from kuznnets in the development of individual countries, but rather from historical differences between countries. However, the “Kuznets effect” associated to GDP per capita is four times smaller in magnitude than the externality of average schooling favouring the decrease of income inequality within countries since Because of this, Dobson and Ramlogan suggest that perhaps trade openness can be related to inequality through a Kuznets curve framework.
Economic development and environmental quality: National Bureau of Economic Research. Proponents of the EKC argue that this varied relationship does not necessarily invalidate the hypothesis, but instead that the applicability of the Kuznets curves to various environmental indicators may differ when considering different ecosystems, economics, regulatory schemes, and technologies.
Retrieved 16 June Stiglitz highlights that the high rates of growth provided the resources to promote equality, which acted as a positive-feedback loop to support the high rates of growth.
Thus, this progression of environmental clean-up occurring in conjunction with economic growth cannot be replicated indefinitely because there may be nowhere to export waste and pollution-intensive processes. Kruegerthe authors who initially made the correlation between economic growth, environmental clean-up, and the Kuznets curve, conclude that there is “no evidence that environmental quality deteriorates steadily with economic growth.
Retrieved 18 June Economic Growth and Income Inequality. In a biography about Simon Kuznets’ scientific methods, economist Robert Fogel noted Kuznets’ own reservations about the “fragility of the data” which underpinned the hypothesis.
Palma then shows that there are two distributional trends taking place in inequality within a country:. Deininger and Squire,
