The Spillover Effect of Exports: An Analysis of Caribbean SIDs

Hosein, R., Satnarine-Singh, N., Saridakis, G. (2022) The Spillover Effect of Exports: An Analysis of Caribbean SIDs. Economia Internazionale / International Economics, 75 (1). pp. 1-28. ISSN 2499-8265. (KAR id:93011)


The paper empirically examines the degree to which exports are productivity enhancing in fourteen Caribbean Community (CARICOM) states. To do so, exports are included in a modified production function and a panel autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) model is specified and estimated using a Common Correlated Effects (CCE) estimator to determine the spillover effect of the export sector to the non-export sectors in these economies. The results indicate that there is a crowding out effect, such that as exports increases, non-export Gross Domestic Product (GDP) decreases.
