Series on Central Banking, Analysis, and Economic Policies, v6

"The economics of growth and development has arguably become the main inquiry of research economists and policy makers in the last 20 years. This book written by authors that have already made important contributions to this field, provides a very claer and provocative view on the process of economic growth. The consequences of growth on development, the nexus of cyclical fluctuations with long-run trends, and the relationship between public policy and economic growth are just three examples of the book's main ingredients."

-Victor J. Elías, Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, Argentina.

"An oustanding colletion of research articles by leading growth specialists on one of the most significant questions in economics - the sources of variations in growth rates across countries."

-Oded Galor, Brown University

"This book is a remarkable colletion of articles written by leading economic growth researchers. It provides an up-to-date assessment of the state of the art in economic growth research, complemented with very interesting case studies of the Chilean experience."

-Sergio Rebelo, Northwestern University
