The harmful effects of primary sector foreign direct investment on carbon dioxide emissions in developing countries, 2000–2018
Social Science Quarterly
Objective: This research investigates whether primary sector foreign direct investment affects carbon dioxide emissions in developing countries. Methods: I estimate generalized least squares random effects panel regression models. Results: GLS RE panel regression models indicate that primary sector foreign investment dependence is positively associated with total carbon dioxide emissions, which supports the tenets of foreign investment dependency theory. Conclusion: This analysis underscores the need for comparative international scientists to conduct more nuanced investigations of the macro-level processes affecting greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries.
