Introduction: The Dual Economy Approach to Economic Growth and Development
This volume contains papers that use a two-sector approach to studying economic growth. Many economists believe taking such an approach is essential, especially for understanding the early stages of development. A two-sector model generates important insights about both the accumulation of physical and human capital (Mankiw et al. 1992) and improvements in total factor productivity (TFP) (Hall and Jones, 1999; Parente and Prescott, 2000). The main premise is that the structural transformation of an economy, as one sector expands and another contracts, is a fundamental cause, and not just a by-product, of aggregate growth.
