  • Carbon Efficiency, Carbon Reduction Potential, and Economic Development in the People's Republic of China: A Total Factor Production Model 

    Yang, Hongliang (Asian Development Bank, 2010-06-01)
    "Carbon intensity" is the traditional measure of an economy's carbon performance. However, it is incapable of capturing the multidimensional features of an economy's carbon performance, particularly when increased emissions have causes other than poor ...
  • Incorporating undesirable outputs into Malmquist TFP indices with an unbalanced data panel of Chinese power plants 

    Yang, Hongliang (Taylor and Francis, 2011-06-09)
    In this article, we examine the effects of undesirable outputs on Malmquist Total Factor Productivity (TFP) indices. Our empirical work uses an unbalanced panel of 1626 real observations on coal-fired power plants in China during 1996–2002. In order ...
