''Energy use and economic growth in Africa: a panel Granger-causality investigation''
( 2014, Vol. 34 No.2 )
 
 
We make use of a bootstrap panel analysis of causality between energy use and economic growth for a sample of sixteen African countries over the period 1988-2010. Our results show that growth and energy use are strongly linked in Africa. However, African countries are heterogeneous and there is no “one way” recommendation about energy-growth relationship that may work for all countries in Africa.
