Does better governance foster efficiency? An aggregate frontier analysis
AbstractWe test the relationship between governance and macroeconomic technical efficiency on a sample of 62 countries, both developed and developing. We do so by applying Battese and Coelli (1995)âs method at the aggregate level. We find that better governance, measured by six complementary indices each devoted to a different dimension of governance, is always associated with greater efficiency. However, when governance variables are tested against each other, we observe that government efficiency is the aspect of governance that most robustly affects aggregate efficiency.
