Abstract [en]

This study examines the relationship between free trade and economic growth as well as what impact open trade has on economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa. Some previous studies question this connection while a majority claim that there is a positive correlation. The data used is collected from World Bank and Fraser Institute. In the study, two different regressions are made that measure trade in two different ways. The first regression, which is the main test, measures the correlation between economic growth and free trade. The second regression is a robustness test and measures the correlation between economic growth and total trade. Both regressions have GDP per capita as the dependent variable and labor, capital, investment, economic freedom index, initial GDP and education as independent variables. The survey is a panel data study and is limited to the time period 2007-2017 and includes 44 of 46 possible countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
