Structural Change in Resource-Abundant Economies
The present dissertation addresses the question of how environmental quality, wealth distribution and economic development are related. It focuses on the impact of resource abundance and wealth distribution on the structural transformation during the growth process, the effect of financial development on resource use and how the lack of rules and regulations in developing countries affect environmental quality and production. It uses theoretical modeling, model calibration and econometric techniques with data from field studies in Azerbaijan, India and Iran to answer this question.
