convergence rate across the U.S. is about 7 percent per year – higher than the 2 percent normally found with OLS in cross …-country, U.S. state, and European region samples. Estimated convergence rates for 32 individual states are above 2 percent with … an average of 8.1 percent. For 29 states the convergence rate is above 2 percent with 95 percent confidence. For seven …

Regional disparities in Central and Eastern Europe rose substantially since 1990. Still, prima facie evidence of beta-convergence … convergence. In both CEE and the ‘old’ EU15, regional convergence is strongly linked to the level of national development, non …-linearly. But while in the EU15 convergence speeds-up at intermediate/high levels of development, in CEE we find divergence at …
We study the dynamic output and welfare effects of public infrastructure investment under a balanced budget fiscal rule, using an overlapping generations model of a small open economy. The government finances public investment by employing distortionary labor taxes. We find a negative short-run...
The paper studies the dynamic output effects of public infrastructure investment in a small open economy. We develop an overlapping generations model that includes a production externality of public capital and a wealth effect on labor supply. Public capital enters the firm's production function...
