Summary
What causes growth? Why have some countries grown much faster than others? Why do some countries not grow at all, or even experience negative (per capita) growth rates? What can governments do to raise the growth rates of their countries? These questions were discussed at a conference organized by the Netherlands Economic Institute (NEI) on behalf of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Determinants of Economic Growth contains the proceedings of the conference
