Title: Multiple Growth Regimes ? Insights from Unified Growth Theory

Author(s): Oded Galor

Keyword(s): convergence clubs, Malthusian epoch, sustained growth and unified growth theory

Programme Area(s): International Macroeconomics

Abstract: Unified Growth Theory uncovers the forces that contributed to the existence of multiple growth regimes and the emergence of convergence clubs. It suggests that differential timing of take-offs from stagnation to growth segmented economies into three fundamental regimes: slow growing economies in a Malthusian regime, fast growing countries in a sustained growth regime, and economies in the transition between these regimes. In contrast to existing research that links regime switching thresholds to critical levels of income or human capital, UGT associates them with critical changes in the rates of technological progress, population growth, and human capital formation.
