D. Akpokodje

Working Papers from African Economic Research Consortium

Abstract: This study explored the association between export earnings fluctuations and capital formation in Nigeria. Using a reduced form equation built around the flexible accelerator model and adopting a cointegration technique, it discovered that the current level of export earning fluctuations adversely impinges on investment (that is, the change in capital stock) in the short run.
