Discussion Paper Series
The broad objectives of theoretical and empirical research at the Economic Growth Center are to understand the process of economic development and growth as well as the associated changes in economic structure. In particular, an understanding of how policies affect that process is necessary for suggesting policies for promoting development. The research is founded on relevant economic theory (micro and macro) and econometric tools. Empirical studies rely on cross-sectional and intertemporal
data on micro decision-making units, such as individuals and households, and
aggregates, such as nations, interpreted within suitable economic,
demographic, and social frameworks. An increasing share of the research
involves the study of the behavior of persons, households, and firms, as
revealed in sample surveys, and applies the tools of microeconomic theory
and associated statistical tools. EGC Discussion Papers report the results of the research efforts of Center members.
Hardcopies of these papers are available at a cost of $2.00 each plus postage.
