Private And Government Consumption In Transitional Economies: A Panel Data Analysis
AbstractThis paper investigates the presence of the relationship between private and government consumption through panel data techniques. Using a panel from different transitional countries, from 1990 to 2003, it applies the panel cointegration and causality methodologies. The study finds statistical evidence for a long run relationship between the variables under study. The empirical findings do not support the Ricardian Equivalence, since government consumption affects private consumption negatively in both methodological approaches.
