M. Suárez Estimates of the output elasticity are likely to be sensitive to the specification of the production function. As argued in Sect. 5)]. We expect these restrictions to reduce the absolute size of the estimated output elasticity of public capital (Hypothesis 2).

Estimates of the output elasticity of public capital are likely to be sensitive to the econometric specification of the equation to be estimated.
