Exploring sectoral elasticity vis–à–vis per worker income with a focus to agriculture: a study of Sub–Saharan Africa
Journal article, Created By Kumar, Ronald Ravinesh and Published By Inderscience in English language
In this study, we explore the contribution from sectoral share towards per worker income in the Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region over the years, 1980 to 2009. Within the last three decades, agriculture and services did not contribute positively towards growth in per worker income. Manufacturing sector on the other hand, had a transcending effect with a positive contributory power (0.31%) towards the long-run growth and sustainability of the region. Therefore, ‘targeted sub-sectoral’ policy reforms to strengthen backward-forward integration of agriculture and services sectors&#x...
Exploring the interactive effects of remittances, financial development and ICT in Sub-Saharan Africa: an ARDL bounds approach
Journal article, Created By Kumar, Ronald Ravinesh and Published By Inderscience in English language
In this paper, using the ARDL bounds approach and augmented Solow framework, we explore the impacts of capital inflows (remittances, foreign direct investment and overseas development assistance) and financial-technology inclusion viz. remittance on per worker income in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) for the periods 1970-2010. The results show that growth in the region is lead by capital productivity. Although information and communications technology (ICT) per se has a negative effect on income, when ICT is associated with financial development and remittances, the effects are ...
