The macroeconomic impact of scaled-up aid the case of Niger by Abdikarim Farah( file )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
We develop a simple macroeconomic model that assesses the effects of higher foreign aid on output growth and other macroeconomic variables, including the real exchange rate. The model is easily tractable and requires estimation of only a few basic parameters. It takes into account the impact of aid on physical and human capital accumulation, while recognizing that the impact of the latter is more protracted. Application of the model to Niger -- one of the poorest countries in the world-suggests that if foreign aid as a share of GDP were to be permanently increased from the equivalent of 10 percent of GDP in 2007 to 15 percent in 2008, annual economic growth would accelerate by more than 1 percentage point, without generating significant risks for macroeconomic stability. As a result, by 2020 Niger's income per capita would be 12.5 percent higher than it would be without increased foreign aid. Moreover, the higher growth would help Niger to cut the incidence of poverty by 25 percent by 2015, although the country will still be unable to reach the Millennium Development Goal of poverty reduction (MDG 1)
Mauritius : challenges of sustained growth by James Y Yao( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 116 libraries worldwide
Mauritius has achieved remarkable success since its independence in 1968. It has one of the highest per capita GDPs in Africa, the economy has diversified from complete dependence on the sugar crop, into textiles, then tourism, and recently information and communication services. This paper examines the factors that have contributed to this impressive growth, including macroeconomic stability, a solid institutional framework, political stability, an efficient administration, a favorable regulatory framework, and a well-developed financial system, and outlines the challenges that remain to ensure continued sustainable growth in Mauritius.--Publisher's description
The impact of human capital on growth : evidence from West Africa by Emilio Sacerdoti( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Intuitively, one may expect human capital accumulation to contribute positively to economic growth. However, empirical support for this assumption appears less clear than had been previously believed. Bosworth, Collins, and Chen (1995) and Pritchett (1996) show that a positive correlation between school enrollment ratios and output growth should not be interpreted as evidence that human capital contributes positively to growth, as school enrollment is poorly correlated with the improved measure of human capital accumulation calculated by Nehru, Swanson, and Dubey (1995). However, while economists agree that enrollment ratios have no place in a production function equation, they do not share the same opinion about the way human capital is related to economic growth. Pritchett estimates the coefficient on human capital to be negative, but Nehru and Dhareshwar (1994) show that human capital contribution to growth is positive and significant
Access to bank credit in Sub-Saharan Africa: Key issues and reform strategies by Emilio Sacerdoti( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
This study discusses issues of access to bank credit in Sub-Saharan Africa, and examines measures that could help facilitate access by the private sector to bank credit. It reviews in particular obstacles to credit small- and medium-scale enterprises and agriculture, and examines progress in the design and implementation of reform measures that are needed to create an institutional environment more supportive of credit activity. It also reviews bank interest rate spreads and profit margins, and their determinants, and compares such spreads with those prevailing in other regions of the world
