Renewable energy is considered to be a useful tool to mitigate global carbon dioxide emissions and its benefits are linked to globalization. To investigate the heterogeneous effects of renewable energy and globalization at different levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), the present study utilized the Quantile Autoregressive Lagged (QARDL) model. In addit...
Article

China, being the world’s largest exporter, has now certain environmental commitments such as to achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. These commitments of China has raised a reasonable concern regarding the expected reduction in the production and export of pollution intensive goods in the future. Besides China, the most efficient countries in the...

Article
Full-text available
The traditional literature has explored various factors including, but not limited to, trade openness, financial development, energy consumption, foreign direct investment, globalization, and per capita income that significantly contribute to carbon emissions. However, the current study identifies aggregate domestic consumption spending (ADCS) as a...
Article

The literature review of ample body indicates that the majority of the studies rely on a single proxy, while exploring the determinants of environmental quality, that can produce misleading results. To subdue this exigency, the current study extends the literature by deploying three proxies (carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide emissions) for...
Article
Full-text available
In the contemporary era, it is evident that consumption-based carbon emissions (CCO2e), adjusted for international trade, are a more accurate and robust measure of environmental pollution than production-based emissions. Therefore, many studies have focused on exploring the determinants of CCO2e; however, the literature could not yet discern enviro...
Article
Full-text available
The prior empirical research focuses on examining only the procyclical impact of innovation on carbon emissions (CO2e), in the majority of cases, for advanced economies. The current paper contributes to the extant literature by integrating positive and negative shocks of innovation in the model to scrutinize their potential effects on CO2e for the...
Article
Full-text available
Over the last few decades, the available literature on environmental economics hosts numerous environmental issues and underlines their reasons, calling for instant action on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2e). In the same context, the recent article develops a new framework that extends the pertinent literature by linking commercial policies, globali...
Article
Full-text available
Foreign direct investments can exert ambiguous effects on the environmental quality of the hose economies. Besides, terrorism is a worldwide phenomenon that affects human life, FDI inflows, economic growth, and, most importantly, environmental well-being. However, in the previous literature, less attention has been given to the nexuses between terr...
Article
The current paper formulates a novel framework to scrutinize the effects of shocks in technological and financial innovation on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2e) in BRICS economies. The Westerlund cointegration test is applied to confirm the long-run association among the constructs. The estimates of second-generation techniques, viz, Augmented Mean...
Article
The current study intends to securitize the asymmetric link between tourism and deficit in the balance of payments of Pakistan. To this end, the study deploys the annual data for 1976-2019, applying a novel cointegrating approach, viz, asymmetric Autoregressive-Distributed Lag (NARDL) technique. The Zivot and Andrews (1992) test is also deployed to...
Article
Poverty is considered a complex and multifaceted phenomenon that can be subjected to various socioeconomic factors. This study aims to assess the potential asymmetric influence of foreign direct investment (FDI) and trade openness, controlling for economic growth, health expenditure, and population size on income poverty in Pakistan from 1972 to 20...

This study uses the gravity model to analyze the homogeneous and heterogeneous effect of institutional quality and development on bilateral exports. We use the panel data of 61countries for the period 2000 to 2016 and employ the Poisson Pseudo Maximum Liklihood (PPML) econometric technique with a High-Dimensional fixed effect (HDFE) for an estimati...
