JEL O47 - Measurement of Economic Growth; Aggregate Productivity; Cross-Country Output Convergence Gianpaolo Mariutti
The Wealth of Nations is still nowadays a topic of central interest for both economists and public opinion. Such interest has been focused on: the perils and traps in the quantitative measures of wealth, how the economies have become rich and evolved in the long run; how they have been subjected in the process of growing to structural changes in their industries, employment, goods, knowledge. The attempt is to single out from data some "regularities" that may be helpful in setting up theories of economic development history-"friendly".
