Tiwari, Aviral and Shahbaz, Muhammad and Shabbir, Muhammad (2011): Is per capita GDP non-linear stationary in SAARC countries?
Download (80kB) | Preview
Using data for SAARC region, we found real GDP per capita is nonlinear stationary implying that shocks to economy by economic policies (external or internal) have permanent effects on real per capita GDP of SAARC countries. This finding reveals that classical growth model works better to boost economic growth in long run.
