Growth Economics of Epidemics: A Review of the Theory

  • Raouf Boucekkine
  • Bity Diene
  • Theophile Azomahou

This survey of economic growth theory applied to epidemiology highlights that Blanchard-Yaari structures involving a Lucas human capital accumulation are appropriate to study an AIDS-like crisis. Physical capital accumulation, schooling, health expenditures and supply effects are put together within a Blanchard two-sector economy to capture life-cycle effects of AIDS-like epidemics.
