Handy Book of Economic Growth

NOTE: The Growth Economics Blog has moved sites. Click here to find this post at the new site.

I thought it would be nice to post some overview articles of significant research in economic growth.

  1. Culture, Entrepreneurship, and Growth. Doepke and Zilibotti
  2. Trust, Growth, and Well-Being, Algann and Cahuc
  3. Long-term Barriers to Economic Development, Spolaore and Wacziarg
  4. Family Ties, Alesina and Giuliano
  5. The Industrial Revolution, Clark
  6. Twentieth-Century Growth, Crafts and O’Rourke
  7. Historical Development, Nunn
  8. Institutions and Economic Growth in Historical Perspective, Ogilvie and Carus
  9. What Do We Learn from Schumpeterian Growth Theory? Aghion, Akcigit, and Howitt
  10. Technology Diffusion: Measurement, Causes, and Consequences, Comin and Mestieri
  11. Health and Economic Growth, Weil
  12. Regional Growth and Regional Decline, Breinlich, Ottaviano, and Temple
  13. The Growth of Cities, Duranton and Puga
  14. Growth and Structural Transformation, Herrendorf, Rogerson, and Valentinyi
  15. The Chinese Growth Miracle, Yang Yao
  16. Growth From Globalization? A View from the Very Long Run, Meissner

If I were an enterprising publisher, I would go find some editors. Maybe Philippe Aghion and Steven Durlauf, just to throw some names off the top of my head. I’d have them put these together into a nice volume. Oh, wait

Quick update: I posted this list under the “Papers” page on this site if you want a more permanent place to find them.

More updates: Thanks to Pseudoerasmus for the links on the Yao and Meissner papers.

  2. Thanks for the great reading. I especially enjoyed Clark (though I didn’t agree with much of it) and Ogilvie.
