Praise for the First Edition: "Charles I. Jones has laid out 40 years of work on growth economics in a clear, compact, civilized package. You get theory, you get facts, and you get a picture of what it"s all about, in a form very suitable for undergraduates. It is not a bad way to start integrating macro and micro." - Robert M.

Jones has written a wonderful introduction to the subject, one that takes the reader to the frontier of current research." - Paul Romer, Stanford University Description: One of the hottest fields in contemporary macroeconomics, economic growth is both fascinating to theorists and critically important to policy makers.
