A simple growth model of schooling and public expenditure on education

Alvarez-Albero, Carmen D.
This paper examines the long run effects of public expenditure on education on time allocation and the growth rate in a two-sector model of endogenous growth with physical and human capital. Individuals accumulate human capital by devoting time to school and public expenditure on education is an input in the human capital technology. The model shows that when the government modifies the proportion of resources assigned to education, the time spent in school may increase, fall or remain constant while the growth rate increases. This result depends on the intertemporal elasticity of substitution, and partially explains why shifts in school attainment of the labor force are not significantly related to the per capita GDP growth rate.


The growth of income and energy consumption in six developing countries
Sarı, Ramazan; Soytaş, Uğur (2007-02-01)
This paper reexamines the inter-temporal link between energy consumption and income in six developing countries with diverse economic backgrounds and energy statistics, in a production function framework. We employ the generalized variance decompositions and generalized impulse response techniques to see if the growth of income and energy consumption contains considerable information to predict each other. In all countries, energy appears as an essential factor of production. Results indicate that energy ma...
Does Information and Communication Technology Sustain Economic Growth? The Underdeveloped and Developing Countries Case
Erdil, Erkan; Türkcan, Burcu (IGI-Global, 2010-01-01)
This paper tests the impact of ICT on economic growth for underdeveloped and developing countries by using a panel dataset for the period of 1995-2006. We first develop the theory of the relationship between ICT and economic growth. We show that ICT-capital has a positive effect both on long-run and transitional income per capita, if it is considered as a factor of production. Next, we estimate a panel data set with 131 underdeveloped and developing countries under the assumption that ICT is one of the dete...
The impact of international capital flows in a three-sector open economy: a dynamic general equilibrium analysis
Akgül, Zeynep; Saraçoğlu, Dürdane Şirin; Department of Economics (2009)
This thesis examines the effects of international capital flows on economic growth by using a dynamic general equilibrium framework based on a three-sector Ramsey Model. In order to detect the impact of financial integration on production, allocation of resources across three sectors and consumption, two different economic environments are modelled. While the first model represents a closed economy with financial autarky, the second model examplifies a financially integrated open economy with partial capita...
A multivariate analysis of carbon dioxide emissions, electricity consumption, economic growth, financial development, industrialization, and urbanization in Senegal
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
In this study, a multivariate analysis of carbon dioxide emissions, electricity consumption, economic growth, financial development, industrialization, and urbanization was performed in Senegal using the nonlinear iterative partial least squares (NIPALS) regression during the period 1980-2011. There was evidence of a linear relationship between the variables using the linear regression analysis. However, the explanatory variables exhibited a strong collinearity, which led to using the NIPALS regression anal...
Human Capital and Productivity Growth: A Comperative Analysis of Turkey
Saygılı, Şeref; Cihan, Cengiz; Yavan, Zafer Ali (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2005-12)
This paper analyzes the role of human capital in productivity growth for a panel of around 50 countries from different levels of development, including Turkey. We particularly focus on the relevance of different quantitative measures of human capital in explaining productivity growth and a detailed examination of the case of the Turkish economy. The analysis covers the period 1981-2002 and the average years of education of the labor force and schooling rates for different education levels are proxy variable...
