A very readable and clear introduction to the modern macroeconomic analysis of economic growth. The reader is led through the very important subject matter in clear, careful steps and is brought to the frontier of the literature by the two highly qualified authors. (William J. Baumol, New York University)
This is a remarkably clear and insightful account of alternative approaches to the theory of distribution and growth. While the attention focuses on the modern Classical approach, derived from the analyses of the old masters from Adam Smith to Ricardo and Marx, Keynesian, traditional Neoclassical and ‘new’ growth theories are also dealt with in some depth. The book tackles the important issues of renewable and exhaustible resources and of money and growth, issues often neglected in the respective literature. In addition, it discusses in an illuminating way the politically controversial issues of the impact of government debt and social security systems on growth and the pace of technical change. The sound analytical work is complemented by substantial empirical studies. The student is provided with all the necessary concepts and tools needed in order to do original work. The work is well written, the subject matter carefully arranged and a number of well selected problems allow the student to test his or her acquired knowledge. (Heinz D. Kurz, University of Graz)
