Does too much government investment retard economic development of a country?
The purpose of this paper is to understand how the effect of the government size per capita on the steady-state level of output and on the growth rate differs between LDC’s and developed countries. It is shown that an increase in government size will increase the steady-state level of output if the economy is at a low steady-state (underdeveloped), and will decrease the steady-state level of output if the economy is at a high steady-state (developed).
