Convergence and regional productivity differences: Evidence from Greek prefectures

Dimitris Christopoulos () and Mike Tsionas

The Annals of Regional Science, 2004, vol. 38, issue 3, 387-396

Abstract: We study the effect of technology gaps and capital deepening on the productivity growth of Greek prefectures over the period 1971-1995. The empirical results show that Greek prefectures tended to converge over time, contrary to conventional wisdom. It is found that capital deepening plays a significant role in explaining productivity differences at the regional level. The empirical results are discussed in detail.
