About this product
- DescriptionThe conditions for sustainable growth and development are among the most debated topics in ecomics, and the consensus is that institutions matter greatly in explaining why some ecomies are more successful than others over time. Understanding Long-Run Ecomic Growth explores the relationship between ecomic conditions, growth, and inequality, with a focus on how the mopolization of resources by the political elite limits incentives for ordinary people to invest in human capital or techlogical discovery. Among the topics discussed are the development of credit markets in France, the evolution of transportation companies in the United Kingdom and the United States, and the organization of invation in the United States.
