Abstract

The effect of business tax and regulation on growth, together with potential effects of government spending on education and R&D, is embodied in a model of a small open economy with growth choices. The structural model is estimated on post-war panel data for 76 countries and the bootstrap is used to produce the model's sampling variation for the analysis of panel regressions of growth. Statistical rejection can occur at either the structural or the growth regression stage. The models featuring government spending on education and R&D are rejected while that with business taxation is accepted.
