Causality between Defence Spending and Economic Growth: The Case of Mainland China
Using cointegration and Granger causality tests, examines the causal relationship between defence spending and economic growth in mainland China over the period 1950-1991. The results show that defence spending is not cointegrated with the real economic growth rate, implying the lack of any long-run equilibrium relationship between the two variables. In addition, Granger causality tests indicate causal independence between the two variables.
