Building sustainable growth and industrial development requires investment in capabilities - institutions, enterprises and infrastructure upon which new wealth can be generated. The LSE's John Sutton has been at the forefront of a new series of publications focusing on the enterprise maps for a cluster of strong-performing African countries. He talks about this project in a short video from the International Growth Centre. Click below to view it.
Incidentally, John was one of those people at the Royal Economic Society (along with Hamish McRae, Tim Harford and Sir John Vickers) who encouraged Tutor2u to launch the annual essay competition for sixth form economists.
The International Growth Centre aims to promote sustainable growth in
developing countries by providing demand-led policy advice based on
frontier research. It is based at the LSE in partnership with Oxford
University. Check out their web site for teaching and learning resources.
