Causal Link between Central Government Revenue and Expenditure: Evidence for India
This paper attempts to analyze the causal relationship between central government revenue and expenditure for India using annual data over the period 1970-2010. The Johansen cointegration test suggests that there is a long-run relationship among the variables. The result from Granger causality test based on Vector Error Correction Models (VECM) suggests unidirectional causality from expenditure to revenue in the long-run supporting Spend-and-Tax hypothesis. The short-run Granger causality test based on WALD test restriction suggests that there is no causal relationship between the variables.
