BooknewsIn two volumes, reprints (in facsimile) 37 articles dating from 1985 to 1994, and published in such journals as "American Economic Review", "J. of Political Economy", and "Quarterly J. of Economics", among others. The selection includes recent theoretical and empirical contributions to the debate on long-term economic growth, a study revitalized in recent years as it became clear that countries were not converging in income levels as was predicted by the neoclassical field. Because differences in growth rates across countries seemed systematic and predictable, new models of "endogenous growth" were developed. These volumes make accessible discussion of the new models, empirical tests of the models, and extensions of the theory. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
