    Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate how national interpersonal transfer policies affect regions' économic growth. Reviewing the economic literature, we found only incidental evidences and contradictory conclusions. Our objective is to provide some statistical evidence of the relation between interregional interpersonal redistribution towards poor European regions and their relative growth. Using some recent developments in the fiels of spatial data analysis, we found that interpersonal transfers do not seem to affect negatively the economuc growth of poor European regions, while it is not possible to assert their impact on rich regions.
