Tax-spending policies and economic growth: Theoretical predictions and evidence from the OECD (Journal article)

Angelopoulos, K./ Economides, G./ Kammas, Pantelis

We present an endogenous growth model to study the growth effects of the composition of government expenditure and the associated tax burden. When we use data from a set of 23 OECD countries during 1970-2000, our econometric results support the predictions of the theory. The share of productive government expenditure is associated with higher growth, and this result is more robust when we use effective average tax rates and statutory tax rates as measures of the tax burden. With respect to the tax burden, different tax rates have different growth effects.
