Government size and economic growth in emerging market economies: a panel co-integration approach
Arpita Ghose and
Macroeconomics and Finance in Emerging Market Economies, 2013, vol. 6, issue 1, 14-38
A significant positive influence of both government size and domestic investment on economic growth is found in the long run during 1970--2006 for a sample of 19 emerging market economies, employing panel co-integration testing and estimating the parameters using dynamic ordinary least square method, for all the indicators, excepting the case when one chooses general government final consumption expenditure as a percentage of GDP a measure of government size and gross capital formation as a percentage of GDP a measure of domestic investment, with per capita GDP a proxy for economic growth. The findings corroborate the argument that diverse results of the earlier studies are due to different measures adopted.
