The study of economic growth has been an integral part of economics since its inception as a scholarly discipline. Research about the sources and implications of economic growth remain strong, and growth economics regularly takes advantage of advances in new tools and techniques. Volume Two of the Handbook of Economic Growth summarizes recent advances in theoretical and empirical work while offering new perspectives on a range of growth mechanisms, from the roles played by institutions and organizations to the ways factors beyond capital accumulation and technological change can affect growth.
Graduate students and professors worldwide working in all subdisciplines of economics.
"Volume 2 is as splendid in its breadth as Volume 1 was admirable in its depth. The excitement, richness, and creativity of the field of economic growth could not have been conveyed more brilliantly." --Francesco Caselli, London School of Economics
"The literature on economic growth remains as vibrant as ever! Aghion and Durlauf have assembled a great collection of papers testifying to this truth, on topics including the Industrial Revolution, the role of institutions, the interplay between health and growth, globalization, and the stunning growth of China." --Chad Jones, Stanford University
"An indispensable overview of inspiring recent developments in the field of economic growth, underlying the long shadow of history in comparative economic development." --Oded Galor, Brown University
"We have come to know through the experience of many countries over decades that growth is complex and multi-dimensional. Volume 2 of the Handbook of Economic Growth is a very useful and comprehensive assessment of our knowledge of growth and its determinants. By viewing growth through multiple lenses, it admirably captures the richness of the subject." --Michael Spence, New York University
