Abstract

We explore the relationship between economic growth and environmental quality in South Korea. Economic growth is found to generate environmental pressure, but empirical studies in this paper also shows that there exists an inverted U-shaped relationship between environmental pressure measured in terms of SO2, NO2, TSP and BOD and economic growth. The turning point of the curve is located around early 1980s. This coincides with the time when Korean environmental regulation and policies became stricter. The results show some evidence towards the effectiveness of these policies.
