The Economics and Econometrics of the Energy-Growth Nexus recognizes that research in the energy-growth nexus field is heterogeneous and controversial. To make studies in the field as comparable as possible, chapters cover aggregate energy and disaggregate energy consumption and single country and multiple country analysis. As a foundational resource that helps researchers answer fundamental questions about their energy-growth projects, it combines theory and practice in two parts. The first part classifies and summarizes the literature, while the second part explains the econometrics of the energy-growth nexus. The Economics and Econometrics of the Energy-Growth Nexus thus provides order and guidance, enabling researchers to focus on their work with confidence that they are adhering to widely-accepted assumptions and procedures.

Key Features

  • Provides guidance about selecting and implementing econometric tools and interpreting empirical findings
  • Equips researchers to get clearer pictures of the most robust relationships between variables
  • Covers up-to-date empirical and econometric methods


Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers working in energy economics, economic growth, and econometrics
