La teoria del crecimiento economico : perspectivas de trabajo


Author Info

  • Tobon Orozco, David Fernando


The search for the main determinants of economic growth of nations as well as the present lack of an explanatory model for macroeconomic phenomena necessarily lead us to the need of a synthesis or explanatory theory. In this sense, the main theoretical findings based on the basic neoclassical model of Solow-Swan are described as well as the problem of diminishing returns. Emphasis is placed on those models which consider capital as a collection of cumulative factors. Our perspective of work led towards technology and its externalities and the big problems faced by economists today in their understanding and modelling.
