Materials for a course in economic growth based loosely on Jones and Vollrath’s “Introduction to Economic Growth”. Available at Amazon.


The concept of the study guide is to provide the material in layers. The topics in the left-hand table on contents are the structure of my course on economic growth. The sections within each topic are pitched towards an undergrad student with intermediate economics and basic calc skills. Sub-sections under those sections provide deeper dives into the material, and can require deeper math skills.
