Abstract

This study assesses the extent to which public infrastructures have contributed to output in the Chilean economy over the period 1960–1995. For the long-run, it uses a vector error correction model for cointegration tests, while for the short-run, it resorts to the use of impulse response functions and variance decompositions. The results appear to show that public infrastructures in Chile have been significantly productive.
