 Economic Growth

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a macroeconomic equilibrium model of steady growth to show that, provided corporate R&D efforts increase labour productivity, management growth preference results in rapid national economic growth. This preference, together with a higher saving rate, has been the main factor in Japan's rapid post‐war economic growth. The relation between the rate of return on stocks and the rate of company profit is also discussed.

Keywords: growth; macroeconomic equilibrium; management; productivity; profit; R&D; saving
