Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the effects of the Bureau of Reclamation's water resource projects over the period 1930-1970 on regional economic growth in the Southwest. The empirical results indicate that these investments have had an impact on regional economic growth and that the extent of the effect depends on the nature of the water investment, the state of the regional economy, and the amount and nature of other investments in the region.
