What is it about?
Spatial effects are often overlooked in economic growth models. Meanwhile, the importance of human capital in economic growth has been emphasied in the literature. This paper combines the role of human capital and examines the spatial spillover effects of human capital as labour mobility can lead to spillover effects on economic growth. Furthermore, spatial spillover effects captures the competitive behaviour between provincial governments.
