Description

This paper for the first time, examines the EKC( environmental kuznets curve)relationship for CO2 emission for China over the period of 1990-2009.,employing of timeseries data and a multivariate model of carbon emission among GDP, investment for realestate, fixed capital, urban household and money(M1). The empirical result reveals thatthere is Granger causality running from investment for real estate ,GDP and fixed capital tocarbon emission in the long run. The result of this study also suggests that there isunidirectional Granger causality from M1 to real estate industry. Therefore China’sgovernment should adapt economic development model to reduce carbon emission forexample keeping the sustainable and rapid development of real estate.

Is there causality from investment for real estate to carbon emission in China : a cointegration empirical study

This paper for the first time, examines the EKC( environmental kuznets curve)relationship for CO2 emission for China over the period of 1990-2009.,employing of timeseries data and a multivariate model of carbon emission among GDP, investment for realestate, fixed capital, urban household and money(M1).
