ABSTRACT

This study examined Fiscal Deficit Financing and Economic Development using empirical evidence from Nigeria from 2005-2014. Methodologically, the study adopted a quantitative research; employing time-series data (on Human Development Index which was used as a proxy for Economic Development and on Budget Deficit, External debt, Domestic Debt which were proxies for Fiscal Deficit Financing and on Interest Rate which was used as a control variable) sourced from the CBN Statistical Bulletin and Annual Reports 2015. Statistically, univariate analysis (using ADF and PP) tests, Johansen Co-integration test, OLS (short-run and long-run) analyses were performed. Multicollnearity test was performed to determine the absence of high collinearity among the explanatory among the variables. Empirical evidence from the analyses show that fiscal deficits which have now become a monotonous recurrent expenditure of government budgets in Nigeria for decades especially in the Nigerian context and within the period under review, have a negative impact on economic development. Consequently, it is therefore recommended inter alia, that government should endeavour to avoid consistent budget deficits. Budget deficit is not totally avoidable but can be controlled.
