Korea's energy policy and economic growth : The effects of the energy price on the macroeconomy

Related Document
Frame of Image es both the relationship between energy consumption and economic growth and the effects of energy prices in a small open economy in a two-sector framework. With increasing globalization, each country has become more open to, and integrated with, other countries. As the volume of international trade gradually increases among countries, so does the distinction between the traded and the non-traded sector. The impact of economic shocks varies between the economic sectors because of production technology differences and other structural differences. Different shocks affect the economy in different ways in terms of the real exchange rate or the relative price, and consumers alter their consumption patterns accordingly. As a result, we observe the reallocation of consumption and inputs for the production of goods between sectors. Such an important transmission mechanism can only be modeled if we introduce both traded and non-traded sector. In this report, energy consumption and real GDP are selected for the Granger Causality test. We found that both energy consumption and real GDP granger cause each other. For the long run analysis, we use vector

Abstract

Energy is necessary for economic production and economic growth but the mainstream theory of economic growth pays no attention to the role of energy. Toman and Jemelkova(2003) argue that most of the literature on energy and economic development discusses how development affects
energy use rather than vice versa. This study examines both the relationship between energy consumption and economic growth and the effects of energy prices in a small open economy in a two-sector framework. With increasing globalization, each country has become more open to, and integrated with, other countries. As the volume of international trade gradually increases among countries, so does the distinction between the traded and the non-traded sector. The impact of economic shocks varies between the economic sectors because of production technology differences and other structural differences. (The rest omitted)
