G7 ÜLKELERİNDE ASKERİ HARCAMALAR VE EKONOMİK BÜYÜME: PANEL VERİ ANALİZİ

Mehmet Emre ÜNSAL [1]


As a mandatory public finance tool, there are theoretical and applied studies which research the effects of military expenditures on economic growth. This study also aims to investigate the relationship between military expenditures and economic growth by using the data of G7 countries. For this purpose, a Panel Data Analysis is handled over the dataset of Canada, Germany, France, England, Italy, Japan and United States of America for 1970-2017 period. In this analysis, real GDP is used as the dependent variable and military expenditures, export and gross capital formation are used as the independent variables. As a result of the econometric tests, it is determined that the Panel Data Analysis must be done by Driscoll-Kraay Standard Errors estimator. According to the results of the study, military expenditures affect economic growth positively in G7 countries.

Askeri harcamaların, zorunlu bir kamu maliyesi aracı olarak ekonomik büyüme üzerindeki etkilerini araştıran teorik ve uygulamalı çalışmalar mevcuttur. Bu çalışma da askeri harcamalar ile ekonomik büyüme arasındaki ilişkiyi G7 ülkelerine ait verileri kullanarak araştırmayı amaçlamaktadır. Bu amaçla, 1970-2017 dönemi için Kanada, Almanya, Fransa, İngiltere, İtalya, Japonya ve Amerika Birleşik Devletleri’ne ait veriler üzerinden Panel Veri Analizi yapılmaktadır. Bu analizde reel GSYİH bağımlı değişken olarak; askeri harcamalar, ihracat ve sabit sermaye oluşumu ise bağımsız değişkenler olarak kullanılmaktadır. Ekonometrik testler neticesinde Panel Veri Analizinin Driscoll-Kraay Standart Hatalar tahmincisi ile yapılması gerektiği belirlenmiştir. Çalışmada elde edilen sonuçlara göre, G7 ülkelerinde askeri harcamalar ekonomik büyümeyi pozitif etkilemektedir.
