Abstract

In this paper we provide a critical assessment of the contributions of new growth theory to the theory of economic development. We focus positively on the new emphasis on fixed costs and nonconvexities in the process of introduction of new goods and technologies, particularly in the realm of trade and technological diffusion for a developing country, and on the formalization of coordination failures and inderdevelopment traps.
