Do free trade agreements promote sneaky protectionism? A classical liberal perspective

. In fact, the term “free market” does not appear once in the 599 pages. Instead, the signing partners reaffirm “the importance of promoting corporate social responsibility, cultural identity and diversity, environmental protection and conservation, gender equality, indigenous rights, labor rights, inclusive trade, sustainable development and traditional knowledge, as well as the importance of preserving their right to regulate in the public interest.” Therefore, the agreement includes a large number of limitations and exceptions to liberalizing trade.

Electricity Consumption in Botswana:the Role of Financial Development, Industrialisation and Urbanization


Botswana’s electricity supply is overwhelmed by the growing energy demands with the peak electric power deficits being met through imports. This study seeks to understand the key drivers of this increasing electricity demand. Using the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) bounds testing and Error Correction Model (ECM), it examines the role played by financial development, industrialisation and urbanization in Botswana’s energy (or more specifically electricity)-growth nexus between 1981 and 2011. The findings reveal that economic growth, financial development and industrialization positively affect electricity consumption in the short-run and long-run. However, urbanization increases electricity consumption only in the long-term. These finding not only support conservation hypothesis but also imply that policy-makers should take into account the increase in electricity demand arising from financial development, urbanization and industrialisation in energy (electricity) consumption planning in the economy to avoid energy crisis. In addition, policy-makers should search and invests in renewable energy sources such as solar to increase access to cheap energy source.

Improving energy efficiency and building a low-emission economy based on example of Lesser Poland Voivodeship

1 Introduction The correlation between the state of the natural environment and socioeconomic development was first observed in the sixties of the past century. It was found that the activities carried out at the time resulted in environmental degradation and translated into the weak state of the economy and affected the prospects for its development. The idea of “sustainable development” appeared for the first time in 1980. It was used in a document entitled “World Conservation Strategy – Living Resource Conservation for Sustainable Development”, drawn up by

product (GDP) growth. The study found that, under the low growth regime, the oil price has a predictive content for real GDP growth. Besides, it is also found that the higher growth regime will be long lived compared to the low growth regime. Bayat et al. [2017, p. 823] examined whether energy consumption is an important factor for economic growth in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) countries or not. To do so, the study applied panel data analysis considering the period from 1990 to 2013 and found that conservation hypothesis in Russia, feedback
