Abstract

This paper aims to study the relationship between the Government Spending and the private investment in non-oil sectors of Saudi economy through the crowding-out effect during the last four decades. We use the Box-Cox transformation as a specification and the tests of cointegration and causality and the recursive maximum likelihood test. The findings exhibit that the crowding-out effect is verified in Saudi Arabia economy through the investment spending of the government institutions vis-à-vis the institutions of the private sector, meanwhile the results show that the government infrastructure spending supports the increase of the private investments.
