Abstract

This paper presents empirical evidence from a cross-section sample of thirty six Sub-Saharan African countries and time-series sample of selected seven. The evidence suggests that countries in the region that open generally tend to grow faster than those that are closed. However, the country-case study suggests that whether a particular country experiences higher output growth as it “opens up” is contingent upon its own peculiarities
