Abstract

This study intends to analyse the relationship between public expenditures components and economic growth in Togo. It was about determining if ties of causality exist in the sense of Granger between these components and the economic growth Togo and determine if these ties exist, in what sense they go. We have used world development indicator data relative to Togo from 1980 to 2010. The results of our evaluation indicate that causality doesn’t exist to the sense of Granger between the different public expenditure components and the economic growth in Togo.
