While controlling for individual heterogeneity, particular attention is devoted to the question of whether geography, broadly defined to include natural and man-made characteristics at the level of the commune, can be responsible for lower growth rates and, consequently, poverty persistence. We find very limited support for this hypothesis. Neither public nor private investment at commune levels seem to have, per se, a significant effect on growth. However, local poverty rate does have an important, nonlinear, relation with growth rate of consumption at individual level, suggesting the importance of local externalities in this process. The policy implications of this finding are discussed.Keywords: International; Development (search for similar items in EconPapers)Date: 2012New Economics Papers: this item is included in nep-pbe and nep-seaReferences: View references in EconPapers View complete reference list from CitEc Citations: View citations in EconPapers (1) Track citations by RSS feedDownloads: (external link) _Vietnam_AAEA.pdf (application/pdf)Related works:This item may be available elsewhere in EconPapers: Search for items with the same title.Export reference: BibTeX RIS (EndNote, ProCite, RefMan) HTML/TextPersistent link: :ags:aaea12:126489DOI: 10.22004/ag.econ.126489Access Statistics for this paperMore papers in 2012 Annual Meeting, August 12-14, 2012, Seattle, Washington from Agricultural and Applied Economics Association Contact information at EDIRC.Bibliographic data for series maintained by AgEcon Search (Obfuscate( 'umn.edu', 'aesearch' )). var addthis_config = "data_track_clickback":true; var addthis_share = url:" :ags:aaea12:126489"Share This site is part of RePEc and all the data displayed here is part of the RePEc data set.
