IMPORTANT: You need to read and review the paper entitled “Growth Accelerations” by Hausmann, Pritchett and Rodrik in Module 9 before you can engage in this thread.
Once you do, please post an original comment by the end of Saturday (10/24) on:
(1) How do Hausmann, Pritchett and Rodrik define growth accelerations? What is their key finding in terms of their prevalence both in developing and advanced countries? And, on that basis, why are poor countries still poor?
(2) How do regime changes (both good and bad) seem to influence growth accelerations? What might be explaining these results?
Then, by the end of Sunday:
(3) provide concrete and constructive feedback on a fellow discussion group member’s original post.
