  • The impact of economic growth on pollution in developed European countries   Order a copy of this article
    by Lamia Jamel, Samir Maktouf 
    Abstract: In this paper, we empirically investigate the impact of economic growth on environmental degradation in the developed European economies during the period of study from 1985 to 2015. For the econometric methodology, we utilize the Cobb-Douglas production function. From the tests of Kao and Fisher cointegration confirm the existence of a cointegration relationship between the economic growth and pollution. Also, we confirm the hypothesis of basic CEK which assumes the existence of a bidirectional relationship between economic growth and emissions of CO2 in developed European countries during the period of study (1985-2015). In addition, we find that there is a two-way causal relationship between energy consumption and pollution in developed European countries.
    Keywords: Economic growth; pollution; developed European countries; financial development.

  • An analysis of network neutrality regulation with reference to price discrimination
    by Shabana Chandrasekaran 
    Abstract: Traditionally, the internet platform has always been viewed as a one-sided network, imposing neutral network pricing between the subscribers and the content providers. This paper aims at analysing a situation that deviates from net neutrality and thereby studying the competitive outcomes when price discrimination is followed. The characteristics of internet platform as a two-sided market are initially reviewed followed by the analysis of the existing pricing mechanism of the internet service providers. The analysis throws light on the benefits accrued by the stakeholders, namely internet service provider, application provider and subscriber. With this understanding of the internet platform, the current issues of regulating net neutrality and ways of introducing price discrimination are briefly discussed. Building on seminal literature works, the central tenet of the article focuses on introducing a price discriminatory mechanism in a duopoly market condition that increases the overall stakeholders’ value.
