Development and economic growth: the effectiveness of traditional policies

Gabriella Berloffa (), Giuseppe Folloni () and Ilaria Schnyder

No 909, Department of Economics Working Papers from Department of Economics, University of Trento, Italia

Abstract: The empirical evidence of low effectiveness for growth of investment in physical and human capital policies based on international aid is analyzed and discussed (� 1 and 2). Reasons are linked both to limits of analytical and econometric methods (� 4) and the existence of strong complementarities between different dimensions of macroeconomic, social and institutional context (� 3). We critically discuss the new strategies proposed to gain effectiveness in development projects and policies.
