Global growth and international cooperation: a structuralist perspective
This paper revisits the structuralist ideas on trade and growth and suggests (based on the Prebisch's principle of implicit reciprocity) that policies for promoting structural change in the periphery may lead to higher global growth and a better income distribution across countries. The paper discusses the inter-relations and complementarities that exist between autonomous expenditure and industrial and technology policies in the long run. With this objective, we develop a structuralist growth model in which the technology gap and the growth rate of the domestic autonomous expenditure are endogenously determined in a two-country (centre and periphery) international economy.
