This chapter establishes the stylised facts on capital accumulation, structural change, and social welfare in developing countries with different natural resource endowments. It is shown that the development of resource-abundant countries varies depending on their natural resource endowment. Resource-deficient countries diversify into manufactured production and exports sooner, and are less prone to trade policy closure.

Keywords: resource-abundant developing countries; resource-deficient; economic development; capital accumulation; structural change; social welfare; natural resource
