This paper investigates empirically the effects of different components of government expenditures (education, health care, defense, housing, current and capital expenditures as well as public investment) on economic growth in Saudi Arabia, which is one of the fastest growing economies in the Middle East and North Africa, the largest oil producing country in the world, with a large current account surplus.
