Overview

This book presents a multi-disciplinary, insightful approach to development and its economic implications.

This book pursues the search for the ultimate causes of economic growth through a wide-ranging review of historical, demographic, cultural, institutional, political and international causes of stagnation and growth. It pays extensive attention to non-economic developments such as health trends, educational development and state formation. It has a strong empirical and comparative organization, and extensive statistical information. The emphasis is on long-run trends in living standards, poverty and growth since World War II, but coverage includes development as far back as 1500.
