Decentralisation, quality of government and economic growth
Journal:
51 - 2019
Author(s):
Jonathan Muringani, Rune Dahl Fitjar and Andrés Rodríguez-Pose
Abstract:
The effect of decentralisation on regional economic growth is a hotly debated topic. In theory, decentralisation should entail welfare benefits by bringing government closer to the people. In practice, the benefits of decentralisation have been hard to prove. A problem is that the quality of regional governments is often lacking, or at least varies widely across different regions. Hence, regional governments may not be capable of delivering public goods in an efficient and accountable manner.

Investigating causal relations between public Spending and economic growth in Europe
Journal:
51 - 2019
Author(s):
Eduardo Bandrés and María Dolores Gadea
Abstract:
The link between economic growth and the size of the public sector has fuelled one of the most wide-ranging debates in economic literature and the empirical evidence is far from conclusive. With different techniques that encompass both country-to-country causality analysis with VAR models and standard and grouped panels, we study this relationship for a sample of 25 countries from the 1960s

Taxation and economic growth in the European Union: a quantile approach
Journal:
51 - 2019
Author(s):
Francisco Blanco and Francisco J. Delgado
Abstract:
The available literature on the relationship between taxation and economic growth is mixed, although some consensus exists on the negative effects of some taxes on growth. In this paper we study the relationship between taxation and growth for the European Union in 2004−2016 through a quantile regression approach to detect different patterns along the distribution.

New empirical evidence on the impact of public debt on economic growth in EMU countries
Journal:
51 - 2019
Author(s):
Simon Sosvilla-Rivero and Marta Gómez-Puig
Abstract:
New empirical evidence is presented on the impact of public debt on economic growth. To that end, we employ the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) bounds testing approach using annual data from both central and peripheral countries of the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) for the 1961-2015 period. In particular, we allow for different endogenously (data-based) regimes in the parameter relating the public debt variable to the real growth rate.

Public sector bureaucracies and economic growth
Journal:
51 - 2019
Author(s):
Jorge Onrubia, Javier J. Pérez and A. Jesús Sánchez-Fuentes
Abstract:
Public sector bureaucracies are key players in advanced economies, as in the case of European Union countries, for the smooth functioning of the roles assigned to the governments (to provide welfare state services and benefits, public infrastructures, and to design the legal and economic institutional framework). From this perspective, a proper functioning of bureaucratic bodies is crucial for potential growth.

Regional Disparities and Within-country Inequality in the European Union
Journal:
51 - 2019
Author(s):
Roberto Ezcurra
Abstract:
This paper examines spatial disparities in terms of development within EU countries, using data for 272 regions in the current 28 member states over the period 1996-2010. The analysis carried out confirms that within-country inequality is an important component of overall inequality across European regions. Indeed, regional inequality increased in most EU countries throughout the study period.

Strategic partner’s attractiveness index for the European Union. Can the eurasian economic union headed by Russia become strategic partner for the EU?
Journal:
51 - 2019
Author(s):
Pablo Podadera Rivera y Anna Garashchuk
Abstract:
Before the Ukrainian conflict the EU-Russian relationships had been developing in the format of Strategic Partnership, and Russia had been considered as one of the ‘special ten’ to whom a special status of ‘strategic partner’ was awarded. The ‘special ten’ are unequal in size, political regimens, resource endowments, economic development, and power status.
