A Causality Test of the Revenue-Expenditure Nexus in Ghana.


The paper investigates the revenue-expenditure nexus for Ghana. The study covers the period 1980-2013. It examines whether increases in government revenue cause increases in government expenditure or increases in government expenditure cause increases in government revenue. It also examines if changes in government expenditure and revenue have feedback effects on each other. The stationarity test indicates that both variables are stationary at the levels when the test is done with a constant and a trend, and are first difference stationary when the test is done with a constant but no trend.
