This study examines the effects of fiscal policy—particularly government expenditure and taxation—on economic growth in Ethiopia using the ARDL modeling approach. It finds that both in the short and long run, the effect of better human capital formation, increased availability of the economy’s capital stock and labor force had a significant positive effect on the growth of the economy. On the fiscal side, a good performance in the collection of indirect tax revenue and increased productive government consumption had a significant positive effect on the growth of the economy both in the short and long run.
