POVERTY, GOVERNANCE AND ECONOMIC GROWTHDownload This Article
The objective of this paper is to study the effect of governance and poverty on economic growth of a set of eight developing countries during the period 2000-2009, using a dynamic and static panel data model and a simultaneous equations model. The key findings generated from these three empirical tests stipulate a negative effect of governance on poverty and a positive effect of political instability and corruption on poverty.
