By: R. Glenn Hubbard

Economics

Thank you for the opportunity to share my thoughts with you today. I am particularly pleased that you chose to include a session focused on the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA) in a conference on sustainable development.

Assets, Growth, And Welfare

By: John Maynard Keynes

Economics

Large divergences between growth and welfare improvements may arise when growth is volatile and unsustained. Can such divergences between growth and welfare change still arise when economic growth is sustained? That is, can countries maintain rapid growth for prolonged periods without commensurate increases in welfare? If not, the focus should be on policies that assure sustained growth?because those policies would also generally improve welfare. But if yes, the focus on...
