Praise for the First Edition: "Charles I. Jones has laid out 40 years of work on growth economics in a clear, compact, civilized package. You get theory, you get facts, and you get a picture of what it"s all about, in a form very suitable for undergraduates. It is not a bad way to start integrating macro and micro." - Robert M. Solow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology "At last, someone has shown that the entire scope of the modern theory of growth can be brought into the undergraduate classroom. Charles I. Jones has written a wonderful introduction to the subject, one that takes the reader to the frontier of current research." - Paul Romer, Stanford University Description: One of the hottest fields in contemporary macroeconomics, economic growth is both fascinating to theorists and critically important to policy makers. In Introduction to Economic Growth?the only text in the field designed specifically for advanced undergraduates?Charles I. Jones explains in clear, direct language how economists have come to understand the long-run growth of economies. Beginning with empirical evidence?how rich are the rich countries, how poor are the poor, and how fast do the rich and poor countries grow? ?Professor Jones then presents the major theories of economic growth, from the Nobel Prize-winning work of Robert Solow to the new growth theory that has ignited the field in recent years.
