Economic Growth: Technical Progress, Population Dynamics and Sustainability

Simone Marsiglio ()

Rivista italiana degli economisti, 2012, issue 1, 151-158

Abstract: Economic growth is probably the most important goal of every policy intervention because of its wide consequences on the welfare of current and future generations. Because of the current crisis faced by several industrialized countries, this is probably much clearer today than in the past. In order to determine whether and which kind of public interventioncan be taken to restore the growth process, the first step is understanding the relationship between different factors and economic growth. The goal of this brief paper is to shed some light on the mutual implications of growth and some of these factors: demography, technology and environment.
