(p.261) Chapter 14 The New Growth Theory and Development Economics
Can Economic Growth Be Sustained?

Vernon W. Ruttan

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines what development economists should learn from the new growth economics. Growth economists view development economics literature as lacking in objectivity and burdened with irrelevant organizational and behavioral detail, while development economists feel that the only message growth economists provide is with respect to the level of interest rates. With the emergence of a new and richer growth economics literature, the possibilities of a more fruitful dialogue between growth and development economics may be possible.
