Abstract

The present paper shows how the international productivity and competitiveness of a country depend on the rapid accumulation of knowledge based on theentrepreneurial innovative education and on the real transfer of the new technologiesand positive experience. Although there is no explicit relationship between investments in education and the GDP variation the paper shows the existence of an influence of the education and scientific research on the economic growth of a country. We made a long term evolutionary analysis of the GDP and we showed that investments in education and research made four-five years ago are implicitly reflected in the GDP growth. By studying the investments evolution in education and research the paper demonstrates the existence of a similitude between the previous shape of the investments' curve in education and research and an ulterior shape of the GDP’s curve.
