Impact of high oil price on economic growth in small Pacific Island countries by T. K Jayaraman( file )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper investigates the nexus between economic growth and oil price in Pacific island countries (PICs). Except Papua New Guinea, none of the PICs has fossil fuel resources. Consequently, the 13 PICs are totally dependent on oil imports for their economic activities. Since PICs have limited foreign exchange earning capacities, as they have a very narrow range of exports and are highly dependent on foreign aid, high oil prices in recent months have seriously tested their economic resilience. This paper applies the ARDL bounds testing methodology to four PICs, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu with a view to assessing the impact of oil price on economic growth. The findings are oil price, gross domestic product and international reserve are cointegrated in all the four PICs. Further, both in the long and short-runs, we observe that there is a uni-directional relationship as causality linkage runs only from oil price and international reserves to economic growth. The paper makes some policy recommendations

However, in the short run, there is a bi-directional relationship between current account deficit and budget deficit. The study suggests some policy measures
