This paper assess how the government expenditures affected economic growth in developed, developing and underdeveloped countries by using the unbalanced panel approach for the period of 1980-2012. The results indicate that government spending has positive significant impact on economic growth in fixed and random effect models for underdeveloped countries, while for developed countries there is a significant negative relationship between government expenditure and economic growth in both fixed and random effect models. For the developing countries government spending has negative significant impact on economic growth in case of fixed effect model, while for the random effect model, there is positive and insignificant relationship of government spending to economic growth.   
Bu çalışma 1980-2012 dönemi arasında gelişmiş, gelişmekte olan ve az gelişmiş ülkelerdeki kamu harcamalarının ekonomik büyümeyi nasıl etkilediğini incelemektedir. Sonuçlar, kamu harcamalarının azgelişmiş ülkeler için sabit ve rassal etki modellerinde ekonomik büyüme üzerinde olumlu bir etkiye sahip olduğunu; ancak, gelişmiş ülkelerde kamu harcamaları ile ekonomik büyüme arasında anlamlı negatif bir ilişki olduğunu göstermektedir. Gelişmekte olan ülkeler için ise kamu harcamaları, sabit efektif model durumunda ekonomik büyümeyi olumsuz etkilemekte; buna karşın rassal etki modelden elde edilen bulgulara göre değişkenler arasında pozitif ve anlamsız bir ilişki vardır.
