Natural Resource Abundance and Economic Growth

  • Sachs, J-D
  • Warner, A-M

One of the surprising features of modern economic growth is that economies with abundant natural resources have tended to grow less rapidly than natural-resource-scarce economies. In this paper we show that economies with a high ratio of natural resource exports to GDP in 1971 tended have low growth rate during the subsequent period 1971-1989.
