"Mining and petroleum boom and public spending policies in Niger: a dynamic computable general equilibrium analysis"
by Alkassoum Sangare, Saadatou and Helene Maisonnave


Abstract
This study analyzes a public-spending option from mining and oil resources and its impact on Niger’s economy. The windfall gain from mining and oil revenues provides an opportunity for the country to reinvest natural recourse rents, enhance economic development, and address infrastructure gaps. Drawing on the country’s recent and expected mining and oil exploitation, we evaluate the effects of a reinvestment policy in road infrastructure using a dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) model. We find that investment in road infrastructure brings positive spillover effects to other sectors of the economy and benefits to the economy in the long run. Our analysis additionally shows that reinvestment in road infrastructure, given the initial state of infrastructure in Niger, could help mitigate resource curse.
