Abstract

Country specific time series models of the determinants of output for the small developing island countries in the Pacific region are relatively few. This paper explores the applicability of the framework underlying Solow (1956) to analyze the determinants output in Kiribati for the period 1970-2005. It is found that technical progress in Kiribati has been negative virtually offsetting the positive effects of factor accumulation. Aid and remittances have negative effects and exports have only a small positive effect in the short run.
