This chapter presents international comparisons of patterns of economic growth among the G7 countries over the period 1960–95. The chapter is organized as follows.

Section 12.3 analyzes the role of investment and productivity as sources of growth in the G7 countries over the period 1960–95. Section 12.4 tests the implication of the neoclassical theory of growth that relative levels of output and input per capita must converge over time. Section 12.5 summarizes the conclusions of the study and outlines alternative approaches to endogenous growth through broadening the concept of investment.
