The main objective of study is to examine the impact of public debt on growth in Tunisia during the post-revolution period. This study uses a vector error correction model (VECM) to investigate the impact of public debt on economic growth in Tunisia. The results prove the long-term relationship between all the variables. This study shows the drawbacks of debt and how it hampers economic growth; hence, it has a negative influence on interest rates and investments.
