Economic Growth and Change

Edited by John Adams and Francesco Pigliaru ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: The pursuit of economic growth is at the top of every nation’s policy agenda at the end of the 20th century. This authoritative and comprehensive book goes beyond the narrowly-based convergence model of economic growth by considering global, national and regional patterns of growth from a comparative perspective.
