The Impact of Financial and Fiscal Variables on Economic Growth: The Case of India and Korea
AbstractThis paper applies a simple macroeconomic model developed by Green and Murinde (1993) to Korea and India and studies the potency of fiscal and financial policies. The fiscal variables are real government spending, the income tax rate, and the export tax rate; while financial policy variables are the official interest rate, loans from commercial banks, foreign reserves or the exchange rate and foreign capital inflows. Dummies for political instability and financial reforms specific to the two countries are also included. We find that while government expenditure, income taxes and foreign capital inflow have the same effects in the two countries, interest rates, money supply, foreign reserves and financial liberalization have different effects, bringing out the differences in the two economies, [E63, 011, 053]
