In these two essays, I address these issues using (1) macroeconomic data and a cointegration model to quantify the effects of renewable energy on GDP in 15 developing countries and (2) microeconomic data and a fixed-effects panel model to measure the impacts of climate change on agriculture in Chile.
In the first essay, I find that switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy has a positive effect on GDP in developing countries both in the long and the short-run.
1948) developed a body of work that linked the sculptural and the poetic.
She looked to the transformative power of "precarious" forms—small spatial constructions with elements taken from nature destined to disappear—and of what she called her (Stupid diary), the erotic poems with a feminist bent that she wrote from 1966 to 1972.
