Abstract

This paper combines panel data on employment and investment in different types of capital good in Northern Ireland with timeseries data on the level of political conflict (measured in various ways) in order to estimate the extent to which conflict discourages employment and investment of different kinds. While all factors of production are affected by political conflict, the magnitude of the effect varies substantially from one to another.
