 Some Unorthodox Growth Theories

Show Summary Details


Unorthodox growth theories do not assume that technical progress is independant of investment. Theories put forward by various writers including Schumpeter, Hirschman, Kaldor, Kaldor and Mirrlees, Arrow, Eltis, Kennedy, Nelson, and Winter are briefly reviewed. Some provide no growth model, and the models provided by others are unsatisfactory. Importantly, none appears to have been used in any substantial empirical work. But their ideas are drawn on in the model put forward in the book.
