Title: Urbanization and Growth: Commission on Growth and Development
Authors: Michael Spence, Patricia Clarke Annez, and Robert M. Buckley
Keywords: Local Development
Issue Date: 2009
Description: The Commission on Growth and Development was established in April 2006 as a response to two insights: we do not talk about growth enough, and when we do, we speak with too much confi dence. Too often, people overlook economic growth when thinking about how to tackle the world’s most pressing problems, such as poverty, illiteracy, income inequality, unemployment, and pollution. At the same time, our understanding of economic growth is less defi nitive than commonly thought—even though advice is often given to developing countries with great confi dence. Consequently, the Commission’s mandate is to “take stock of the state of theoretical and empirical knowledge on economic growth with a view to drawing implications for policy for the current and next generation of policy makers.”
