Abstract
 
Description
Since the late 1980s, economic growth has again become a central topic in economic theorizing. Recent endogenous growth theory has greatly contributed to the development of the field. Old and New Growth Theories analyzes the most recent developments in the theory of economic growth and compares these to earlier theories. The book’s originality is due in part to the assembly of contributions from scholars of different persuasions - some within the mainstream and others from Keynesian, Kaleckian and Sraffian traditions. The authors deal with a comprehensive variety of research topics including the key elements necessary to generate growth, the mechanisms of endogeneity of growth and technical change, the role of aggregate demand and of investment in physical and human capital. Economic policy issues are also considered. The book will be appreciated by scholars of economic growth, macroeconomics, classical and Keynesian economics as well as historians of economic thought. - from Amzon
