Abstract

This paper aims to examine the impact of public debt on economic growth using the dynamic panel data for a 9 southern Mediterranean countries over the period 1990-2015. Our empirical results showed that public debt is negatively and significantly related to economic growth. They also indicate that inflation, investment and total reserves are the main factors of economic growth in the southern Mediterranean countries.
