Geography, Child Healthcare, Child Education, and Economic Development
We investigate whether geography (temperature and access to international markets), child healthcare, and education matter in economic development for a panel of 44 poor and non-poor countries using random effects GLS analysis over the period 1980-1997. Temperature and market access are particularly important geographical factors in poor countries. Child healthcare and education are important for development and, interestingly, we find negative interaction between them, indicating a potential substitution effect. The results indicate that climate (temperature) has a positive relationship with development in non-poor countries only, when the technology-promoting variables are included. Temperature has a negative relationship with the development of poor countries.
