Abstract:
The Environmental Kuznets Curve hypothesis states that there is a hump shaped or an inverted U-shaped relationship between the degradation of environment and economic growth. It is stated that in the initial stages of economic growth, the quality of the environment deteriorates and after a certain level of income, that is the turning point, the increase in economic growth is associated with a better environmental quality. This is an attempt to critically review the study of Environmental Kuznets curve by Grossman and Krueger (1995).
