Do economic variables operate through the channel of public governance to impact technical (or productive) efficiency in Sub Saharan Africa? We present different stochastic frontier models where technical efficiency is a relation between three economic variables, education, government spending, and trade openness, and three public governance variables, government effectiveness, political stability, and regulatory quality. In all cases, education operates through public governance to improve efficiency while government spending does not.

Abstract

Do economic variables operate through the channel of public governance to impact technical (or productive) efficiency in Sub Saharan Africa? We present different stochastic frontier models where technical efficiency is a relation between three economic variables, education, government spending, and trade openness, and three public governance variables, government effectiveness, political stability, and regulatory quality. In all cases, education operates through public governance to improve efficiency while government spending does not.
