ABSTRACT

The debate on big government and small government has always been a central issue in political reform, however, there has not been much research on the relationship between size of government and the effectiveness of government policies. This paper using a panel data set of 40 OECD and non-OECD countries from 1996 to 2004 will analyze and compare how the size of the government affects the effectiveness of government policies. Assuming the relationship between the size of the government and the effectiveness of the government’s policies are affected by the level of modernity and economic development, dividing OECD and non-OECD countries, the results were significant. In OECD countries the critical hypothesis that the relationship between government size and the effectiveness of government policies is an inverted U-shape rather than a linear one was confirmed. In non-OECD countries the analysis did not produce robust results. According to the analysis, for OECD countries, those that have modern and developed economic institutions, the effectiveness of government policy increases with size of the government until the specific critical point. Past this point, the size of the government has adverse effects on the effectiveness of government policy.
