Strategies for growth in a macroeconomic setting
AbstractEndogenous growth theory explains long-run economic expansion by intertemporal preferences, technology, and other factors, e.g., taxes. Here the authors focus on more subtle and strategic factors in a theory of endogenous growth that follows M. F. Scott (1989) and is based on learning-by-doing and learning-by-watching. Coordination of investment in the presence of learning externalities boosts growth. Managerial discretion based on the separation between ownership and control affects growth but the magnitude of the effects depends on the way firms set labor demand. Uncertainty positively affects growth because of precautionary savings. The effect is amplified if projects with higher growth rates are more risky.
