Abstract



This study investigates the effects of remittances on per capita economic
growth of Pakistan for the period 1976 to 2013. The Auto Regressive
Distributed Lag (ARDL) Bounds testing model was employed to
explore short run and long run liaison of remittances with per capita
economic growth. The analyses evidence statistically significant
positive long run and short run impacts of remittances on per capita
economic growth. Based upon the empirical results, this study suggests
that government should formulate and adopt policies which can
further motivate and enhance remittances inflow, and hence a more
promising economic growth.
