Abstract

This paper examines some contributions to the analysis of the importance of public capital, particularly infrastructure in Spain’s economic growth. We highlight the positive contribution of productive public capital to growth and convergence between regions. We also describe the profile of capital accumulation during the first eight years of the decade, drawing attention to the slowdown in investment in infrastructure. Finally, we provide some reflections about the future.
