Capital mobility, public spending externalities and growth

Calin Arcalean

Producció científica: Article en revista indexadaArticleAvaluat per experts


I present a two-country dynamic model where (i) in each country public spending increases firm entry and (ii) capital is internationally mobile. I show that the difference between the aggregate output elasticity with respect to public spending and its firm level counterpart creates a positive cross-border externality in public spending. In contrast with the literature on cross-border spillovers, this externality arises only under fiscal competition between countries and may therefore lead to higher growth rates under strategic policies relative to coordination.
