Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The historical record concerning industrialization since 1770 is consistent with the classical view of economic growth, but not with the currently accepted neo-classical growth theory. Flaws in the logic and empirical short-comings of the neo-classical theory suggest that it should be rejected. Specifically, ideas that originate in static concepts cannot be applied to growth, a dynamic process. Nineteenth-century industrialization, the world wars and the Depression, the post-war boom, and the more recent slowdown in growth are discussed.

Synopsis:

This book demonstrates the historical relationship between growth and mechanization since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in light of classical and neo-classical growth theory.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [247]-255) and index.
