Le bénéfice de la santé. Un apport des théories de la croissance endogène
AbstractThis paper revisits the relationship between health and growth in light of modern endogenous growth theory. We propose a unified framework that encompasses the growth effects of both, the accumulation and the level of health. Based on cross-country regressions where we instrument for both variables, we find that a higher initial level and a higher rate of improvement in life expectancy both have a significantly positive impact on per capita GDP growth. JEL classification codes: E20, I10, O40, J11.
