Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 112, issue 3, 230-232

Abstract: Government size having a negative effect on growth mainly through hampering capital accumulation is indicated from empirical results through a fixed effects regression model. The negative effect of government size on capital accumulation persists for non-OECD countries but not for OECD countries.
