Abstract

In this interesting paper, Hansson and Henrekson pursue a twofold aim. First, it summarizes empirical research on the 'catching up' effect in economic growth, second, it presents the authors' own work in the field. Their own research on the topic, in turn, draws on three separaet studies. I will use most of the alloted space to comment upon these studies one by one.
