Comprising specially commissioned essays, this Handbook provides an expansive overview of alternative theories of economic growth. It surveys major sub-fields (including classical, Kaleckian, evolutionary, and Kaldorian growth theories) and highlights cutting-edge issues such as the relationship between finance and growth, the interplay of trend and cycle, and stability issues in growth theory.
Included in the text are comprehensive interpretations of subjects such as: the relationship between aggregate supply and demand and long run growth, the interaction of growth and technical change, and international and regional dimensions of growth. Alternative theories of economic growth represent a vibrant and ongoing research effort to understand the macrodynamics of capitalist economies. As such, this Handbook provides a valuable springboard for further research that will continue the development of these theories, inspiring both existing researchers and those new to the field to build upon the body of work the volume represents.
The thought-provoking insights offered by the book's thorough analysis will provide economists, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students with a valuable reference.
