Government consumption and industrial productivity: Scale and compositional effects

Geoffrey J. Wyatt

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Within a production function framework in which government spending produces public goods which enter firms' production functions, empirical tests using time series data spanning eleven countries and thirty industries find both the scale and the composition of government consumption spending to affect the level and the rate of growth of total factor productivity at the industry level. © 2005 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
