Author(s) : Guy Dabi GAB-LEYBA, Claire MAINGUY
Abstract : This paper examines the effect of natural resource endowment on the efficiency of public spending on primary education in resource-rich developing countries. The order-m non-parametric technique is used for this purpose on a sample of 138 developing countries covering the period 1995-2018. The results reveal that the endowment of natural resources and the low efficiency of a State reduce the efficiency of public spending on primary education.
Key-words : Education, public spending on primary education, fragility, efficiency, natural resources, non-parametric approach, resource-rich countries
