Atrayee Ghosh Roy

Applied Economics, 2009, vol. 41, issue 5, pages 607-614

Abstract: The purpose of this article is to explore the effect of government size on economic growth in the United States using time-series data over the period 1950 to 1998. A multi-equation model is developed to examine the relationship between economic growth and government size. The results indicate that government size has a significant and negative effect on economic growth.
