  • Rapid economic growth is the only sustainable foundation for the elimination of poverty. However, only strategies that include agricultural development can establish strong links between overall growth and reduction in poverty. Most strategies that seek rapid industrialization at the expense of agriculture, even if the intent is to alleviate poverty, actually slow down economic growth and increase levels of poverty. In a country with many impoverished people, policymaker must address both growth and poverty through an.......

  • Joseph Schumpeter argued in 1911 that banks play a pivotal role in economic development because they choose which firms get to use society’ s savings. According to this view, the banking sector alters the path of economic progress by affecting the allocation of savings and not necessarily by altering the saving rate. Thus, the Schumpeterian view of finance and development highlights the impact of banks on productivity growth and technological change.

  • ABSTRACT. Scholars have long suspected that political processes such as democracy and corruption are important factors in determining economic growth. Studies show, however, that democracy has only indirect effects on growth, while corruption is generally accepted by scholars as having a direct and negative impact on economic perfor-mance.

  • Exploiting a unique data set containing information about the estimated bribe payments of Ugandan firms, the authors study the relationship between bribe payments, taxes, and firm growth in Uganda for the period 1995-97. Using industry-location averages to circumvent the potential problem of endogeneity, and to deal with issues of measurement error, they find that both the rate of taxation, and the rate of bribery are negatively correlated with firm growth.

  • Despite a sizeable theoretical and empirical literature, no firm conclusions have been drawn regarding the impact of political democracy on economic growth. This paper challenges the consensus of an inconclusive relationship with a meta-analytic review and a quantitative assessment of the democracy-growth literature.

  • THE ROLE OF IMPORT SUBSITITUTION AND EXPORT ORIENTATION STRATEGIES ON THAILAND'ECONOMIC GROWTH This result calls the incentive effects of Tiebout choice into question, as it indicates that administrators of effective schools are no more likely to be rewarded with high demand for local housing in high-choice than in low-choice markets. To explore this further, I estimate models for the effect of Tiebout choice on mean scores across metropolitan areas. Consistent with the earlier results, I find no evidence that high-choice markets produce higher average SAT scores.

  • ESSAYS ON EDUCATION INVESTMENT, INCOME INEQUALITY, AND ECONOMIC GROWTH Recall, moreover, that this thought experiment assumes a choice coefficient at the upper limit of the confidence interval. At the point estimate, choice reduces the gradient of SAT scores with respect to student quality. The models in Table 1.4 reject a sizable—by any reasonable standard—effect of choice on the test score gradient.

  • This article presents the stochastic growth model. The stochastic growth model is a stochastic version of the neoclassical growth model with microfoundations,1 and provides the backbone of a lot of macroeconomic models that are used in modern macroeconomic research. The most popular way to solve the stochastic growth model, is to linearize the model around a steady state,2 and to solve the linearized model with the method of undetermined coefficients. This solution method is due to Campbell (1994)....

  • Recently public attention has turned toward the intricate interrelation between economic growth and global warming. This book focuses on this nexus but broadens the framework to study this issue. Growth is seen as global growth, which affects the global environment and climate change. Global growth, in particular high economic growth rates, implies a fast depletion of renewable and nonrenewable resources. Thus the book deals with the impact of economic growth on the envi- ronment and the effect of the exhaustive use of natural resources as well as the reverse linkage.

  • EDUCATION AND ECONOMIC GROWTH; A CAUSAL ANALYSIS It similarly seems unlikely that parents have zero concern for peer group. In the presence of direct or indirect peer effects on student learning, parents would be irrational to ignore peer group in their evaluations of schools, and anecdotal evidence suggests that they do not do so.

  •  In the present work we have extended these experiments by the use of the plate count in an effort to throw more light on the mechbanism of the salt action. Since our previous experiments have shown that the salt effect is magnified on the acid side of the region of optimum growth (Sherman and Holm, 1922), we have used in the present work media adjusted to a reaction of pH 5.4. All of the counts here reported represent the average of triplicate plates on extract-pepton agar incubated for three days at 33°C. Further details of the experiments are given in the appendix.

  • Several hematopoietic growth factors (HGFs) have achieved widespread clinical application. In the United States alone, more than US $5 billion per year of the health care budget is spent on these factors. The first patients were treated with recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO, epoetin alfa, Epogen®) in 1985 and the first patients received recombinant methionyl human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (r-metHuG-CSF, filgrastim, Neupogen®) or recombinant human granulocyte-macrophage colonystimulating factor (rHuGM-CSF, sargramostim, Leukine® or Prokine®) in 1986.

  • A major trend in the world economy in recent years has been the dynamic growth in a number of regions including China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Russia and the new European Union member states in Central Europe. The strong economic performance of these regions will generate a major shift in world competitiveness with important implications for Europe. Compared to this dynamism, economic growth in Europe has been weak in recent years.

  • The truncated C-terminal portion of Bid (tBid) is an important intermedi-ate in ligand-induced apoptosis. tBid has been shown to be sensitive to pro-teasomal inhibitors and downregulated by activation of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) pathway. Here, we provide evidence that tBid is a substrate of the ubiquitin ligase Itch, which can specifically interact with and ubiquitinate tBid, but not intact Bid.

  • This report explores both the short- and medium-term impacts of the financial crisis on developing countries. It presents evidence that the financial boom played a critical role in the growth boom experienced by developing countries between 2003 and 2007, but that tighter conditions in the future are expected to result in weaker growth over the next 5 to 15 years. Although global growth has resumed, the recovery is fragile, and unless
