The IUP Journal of Public Finance, 2012, vol. X, issue 1, 6-21
This paper applies the technique of Granger causality to determine the relationship between total government expenditure and revenue in Nigeria for the period 1970-2006. The findings of the study generally support the existence of bidirectional causality between government spending and tax revenue, suggesting that the fiscal synchronization hypothesis is confirmed for Nigeria.
