Reviews
--K. Daron Acemoglu, Professor of Economics, MIT
--Phillipe Aghion, Department of Economics, Harvard University
--Charles I. Jones, Department of Economics, University of California, Berkeley
--Robert E. Lucas, Jr., John Dewey Distinguished Service Professor, The University of Chicago, 1995 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences
" This is an invaluable book for a first graduate course in economic growth. The exposition is clear and easy to follow, but also rigorous. It is an excellent stepping stone for research in the field." --K. Daron Acemoglu, Professor of Economics, MIT
" Barro and Sala-i-Martin's valuable and readable book brings the student quickly to the frontiers of modern growth theory." --Robert E. Lucas, Jr., John Dewey Distinguished Service Professor, The University of Chicago, 1995 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences
" Barro and Sala-i-Martin provide an outstanding and comprehensive treatment of growth theory and empirics--an instant classic! I learn something new every time I pull my copy from the shelf." --Charles I. Jones, Department of Economics, University of California, Berkeley
" Barro and Sala-i-Martin have done a superb job of synthesizing much of the existing theoretical and empirical research on the mechanisms and determinants of economic growth and convergence. Though it incorporates much new material, this updated version is fully accessible to a third year undergraduate student, while remaining of invaluable use to any research scholar seriously interested in growth and development economics." --Phillipe Aghion, Department of Economics, Harvard University
