[Show full abstract] using panel data for ten developing countries: Burundi, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Honduras, India, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Zimbabw1e. The countries were chosen for the availability of data and should reflect the various circumstances of low-income countries. Despite the obvious limitation of the data available and the diversity of the countries, the results provide some tentative support for the REP for developing countries, at least warranting further research.
