Abstract:This dissertation contributes to the construction of a theoretical framework for understanding the relationship between environmental quality and economic development. In pursue of this goal, I specialize to dynamic growth models in which pollution is treated as an externality generated in the production sector and affecting the consumption sector. I consider the transitional dynamics and the steady state of not only the typical nations that start their development with a small stock of capital and a large stock of the environment, but also an important group of developing economies where the opposite seems to be true, namely the transition economies of the post Soviet era. Furthermore, I explore the role of different forms of technological heterogeneity across countries as a key determinant of the relationship between environmental quality and economic development.
