Vision and fact - A critical essay on the growth literature
AbstractThis paper contains an overview and interpretation of the literature on economic growth. It is argued that, first and foremost, growth theory is about vision. It is concerned with questions such as: Where are we heading, and why? What are the options? Which actions are needed to arrive at the preferred state? Thus, growth theory is by its very nature deeply political.
