World Bank Paper Analyzes Impact of Infrastructure Spending in SSA

August 4, 2010

The Impact of Infrastructure Spending in Sub-Saharan Africa, Jean-Francois Perrault, Luc Savard, Antonio Estache, World Bank, July 2010

From the paper: The authors constructed a standard computable general equilibrium (CGE) model to explore the economic impact of increased spending on infrastructure in six African countries: Benin, Cameroon, Mali, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda. The basic elements of the model are drawn from EXTER, adjusted to accommodate infrastructure externalities. Seven sectors were considered: food crop agriculture, export agriculture, mining and oil, manufacturing, construction, private services, and public services.
