Economic Report on Africa 2010: Promoting high-level sustainable growth to reduce unemployment in Africa
Book/Monograph, Created By African Union (AU) in English language
Due to the global financial crisis, the world economy contracted by 2.2 per cent in 2009, but there are signs that it has begun to stabilize. GDP growth in Africa declined from 4.5 per cent in 2008 to 1.6 per cent in 2009 and is expected to rise to 4.3 pe
Beyond the Crisis : Revisiting Emerging Europes Growth Model
Book/Monograph, Created By Ruben Atoyan in ENGLISH language
Focusing on the nexus between economic growth and buildup of external vulnerabilities, this paper provides a systematic account of different growth strategies followed in Central and Eastern Europe in 2000-08 and then uses this growth diagnostics to derive implications for the post-crisis recovery. The main findings point to three policy lessons for improving growth sustainability. First, greater reliance on tradable sectors should be the cornerstone of the future growth model. Second, enhancing domestic sources of bank credit funding would contribute to mitigation of ext...
Growth Convergence and Spillovers among Indian States : What Matters? What Does Not?
Book/Monograph, Created By Piyaporn Sodsriwiboon; Sanjay Kalra in ENGLISH language
Convergence and spillovers across countries and within countries are old, but recurrent policy concerns, and India is no exception to this rule. This paper examines convergence and spillovers across Indian states using non-stationary panel data techniques. Results on convergence among Indian states are generally found to be similar, but more nuanced, than previous studies. Generally speaking, there is evidence of divergence over the entire sample period, convergence during sub-periods corresponding to structural breaks, and club convergence. There is strong evidence of club co...
Development Accounting and the Rise of TFP
Book/Monograph, Created By Reda Cherif; Rabah Arezki in ENGLISH language
The paper presents evidence that the contribution of differences in total factor productivity (TFP) to income differences across countries steadily increased between 1970 and 2000. We verify that our finding is neither imputable to measurement errors in input factors nor dependent on the assumption of factor neutral differences in technology. We conclude that theories explaining cross-country income differences based on institutions or on forces that are constant over time, such as geography or legal origin, should be reconsidered in the light of their consistency wi...
