英文摘要: Abstract(#br)This paper carries out an econometric examination of nonlinear unit root and nonlinear causality in the natural gas-economic growth nexus in Nigeria. The techniques employed include the Kapetanios-Shin-Shell (KSS) nonlinear unit root test, Kruse nonlinear unit root test, Brock-Dechert-Scheinkman (BDS) nonlinearity test, Nonlinear Ordinary Least Squares (NOLS) model, and, the Hatemi-J asymmetric causality test. The results revealed that natural gas consumption and economic growth series follow nonlinear trend process as indicated by the KSS and Kruse tests, and that the relationship between natural gas consumption and economic growth in Nigeria is nonlinear as confirmed by the BDS and NOLS tests, where an increase in natural gas consumption increases economic growth. The...
