dc.description.abstractWe show the relevance of government expenditure inefficiency using the Barro (1990) model. Weestimate government inefficiency for 52 developing countries using a data envelopment analysis. Theestimated inefficiencies are subsequently used in a general to specific approach in order to identifytheir determinants. We find the government expenditure inefficiency is primarily determined bygovernance and political variables, and structural country variables. Economic policy determinantsapparently count less. Government inefficiency of the Sub Saharan countries in the sample issubstantially higher.en_US
