Equations 3, constitutes the maintained hypotheses for the ECM specification search. This is evidenced by ADF test result at the ordinary level, which shows that the computed negative ADF test statistics for each variable, is less than the Mackinnon  critical value in absolute term.
By the end ofSolow left the university and joined the U. The newer growth theory endogenous theory fits the real world perfectly well and has important policy implications. However, it agrees with the findings of Pentecost and Kara  and Ogbulu  which show that causality tests are mixed and inconclusive depending on the variables used.
North Holland Publishing Coy. The economic policy argument emphasizes mainly on stable macro-economic environment as an important determinant of economic growth, although there may be other considerations like access to capital and social welfare of the numerous macroeconomic variables, inflation has been found to be a critical determinant of growth.
