This study examined the direct/indirect long-run relationships and dynamic interactions between public investment (PI) and output performance in Nigeria using annual data spanning 1970-2010. A macro-econometric model derived from Keynes’ income-expenditure framework was employed. The model was disaggregated into demand and supply sides to trace the direct and indirect effects of PI on aggregate output. The direct supply side effect was assessed using the magnitude of PI multiplier coefficient, while the indirect effect of PI on the demand side was evaluated with marginal propensity to consume, accelerator coefficient and import multiplier. The results showed relatively less strong direct effect of PI on aggregate output, while the indirect effects were stronger with the import multiplier being the most pronounced. This is attributed to declining capital expenditure, poor implementation and low quality of PI projects due to widespread corruption. By and large, we concluded that PI exerted considerable influence on aggregate output.

already been substantial, bauMax has its eye on a series of further developments. As yet, the system has only a limited ability to deal with competitor data – it has started by tracking the prices of the 100 leading articles on which competitors focus. Future developments are likely to extend this range. one particularly interesting research area is the creation of an integrated demand-and- supply-chain management model that will link pricing to inventory and production planning. There are a number of information technology improve- ments that can be expected
