Abstract
This paper uses panel data from 88 countries to examine the relationship between per capita GDP and per capita energy consumption. The results show that per capita GDP and per capita energy consumption are cointegrated. Also, there is a twoway shortrun, longrun and strong causality between the growth of GDP and growth of energy consumption. These results are in contrast to almost all other existing studies.
