What should developing countries do to increase their growth rates and speed up
the rates at which their citizens converge to the level of material well-being obtained in
today’s advanced nations? Around ten or fifteen years ago, there was a fair degree of
consensus on how to answer this question among North American and Western European
economists. This consensus has by now largely dissipated, for reasons that I will explore
below. Few economists now seriously believe that there is a short list of 10 or 20 policy
reforms that can be relied on systematically to produce higher economic growth.
Any reappraisal of growth strategies must start from a few empirical facts. I
summarize below a number of empirical propositions on which I think most economists
would now agree.
