Abstract

Recent studies, which have attempted to determine what causes an industrial sector in a state to grow, have ignored the general role of the state's economic development agency. We extend the analysis to include its effect, and determine that economic development expenditure by the state is a statistically significant determinant of manufacturing growth in the state. Our result is robust to a variety of specification tests.
