Lanzafame M. Is regional growth in Italy endogenous?, Regional Studies. This paper investigates the extent to which the natural rate of growth of the Italian regions is endogenous, in the sense that it is affected by actual growth. Using annual data for the period 1977-2003, mixed support is found for the endogeneity hypothesis. Furthermore, in line with recent findings in the literature, the analysis provides evidence of asymmetries in Okun's law when growth is endogenous. [image omitted] Lanzafame M. La croissance regionale en Italie, est-elle vraiment endogene?, Regional Studies. Cet article cherche a examiner dans quelle mesure le taux de croissance naturel des regions italiennes est endogene, en ce sens que elle est touchee par la croissance reelle.

Croissance endogene Loi Okun Regions italiennes Lanzafame M. Ist das regionale Wachstum in Italien endogen?, Regional Studies. In diesem Beitrag wird untersucht, in welchem Ausmass die naturliche Wachstumsrate in den italienischen Regionen insofern endogen ausfallt, als dass sie vom tatsachlichen Wachstum beeinflusst wird. Anhand von Jahresdaten aus dem Zeitraum von 1977 bis 2003 stellen wir fest, dass fur die Hypothese der Endogenitat unterschiedliche Belege vorhanden sind. Daruber hinaus liefert unsere Analyse in Ubereinstimmung mit den jungsten Ergebnissen der Literatur Hinweise darauf, dass das Okunsche Gesetz bei einem endogenen Wachstum Asymmetrien aufweist.

Con ayuda de datos anuales durante el periodo 1977-2003, observamos un apoyo mezclado para la hipotesis de endogeneidad. Ademas, de acuerdo con resultados recientes en la literatura, nuestro analisis ofrece ejemplos de asimetrias en la Ley de Okun cuando el crecimiento es endogeno.
