No 09-03.RS, DULBEA Working Papers from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles

Abstract: This paper shows an exploratory study on the use of institutional or cultural proximities on growth model. The justification dealing with spillovers problems in growth models with such connection matrices is detailed. The empirical study answers two questions. First, do institutional and cultural weights are really different to geographical ones? Second, do these proximities have an impact on growth estimation? Analyze concludes that institutional and cultural proximities do differs from geographical proximities. Furthermore, both show autocorrelation with growth. Finally, the spatial estimates point out that institutional weights have a similar impact to geographical weights in growth model. Cultural ponderation seems to be insignificant for growth spillovers problems.
