Editorial Reviews

Review

Professor Barro has been right in the vanguard of the recent empirical literature on economic growth and development. In this little book he provides fascinating new evidence on the interplay between democracy and economic development, and of the impact of inflation on growth, as well as reviewing the evidence on convergence. In all respects a tour-de-force.

(Charles Bean, Professor, London School of Economics)

Format: Paperback
This book is essentially a report on a series of analyses of the determinants of growth, democracy, civil liberties, and inflation. As a statistical analysis with interpretation, it is excellent. If you want to know what factors really affect these variables, you will find answers here. However, the utility for modelers is limited, because the author inexplicably omits to report the extimated constant terms in any of his regressions. One hopes that succeeding publications will provide more help to those who are trying to construct dynamic models of economic growth.

Format: Paperback
The person who buys this book must be really acquainted with economics (senior or master). It involves, as the title states, the determinants of growth and inflation, along with political matters. I really liked this book because it gathers econometric models to support the essays that consists in many political variables just as democracy and civil rights. Barro, as a Harvard professor, has a well-known academic life. So I would suggest for every macroeconomic student to buy this book, it really helps for courses just as Macroecon or Development Economics.

The first two chapters are a bit difficult; however, the rest makes sense, but you must first understand the first two chapters.Glad to have bought this product and recommend this. @eplusq
