Panel data analysis of the nexus between defence spending and growth in the European union: A comment (Journal article)

Hatzinikolaou, D.


In a recent paper of this journal (Vol. 18(1), 2007, pp. 75-85)], Kollias, Mylonidis, and Paleologou (henceforth KMP) examined the relationship between the GDP growth rate (denoted as gdp) and military expenditure as a share of GDP (denoted as milex) using panel data from the 15 countries of the European Union (EU15), 1961-2000 (T=40 annual observations from each country). Given that a Common European Security and Defence Policy (CESDP) is under consideration in the EU15 group, this is an interesting paper. My comments relate to its econometrics and are organized according to the standard three stages of econometric analysis: specification, estimation, and diagnostic checking.
