Treasury publishes seminar papers on economic growth and Government policy
The Treasury is today publishing a collection of papers on economic growth and Government policy which were presented at a seminar held at 11 Downing Street last October.
The seminar brought together leading academics, economic researchers and policy makers to discuss the latest research and evidence on the factors affecting economic growth and the role and implications for Government policy.
The papers being published today provide excellent reference material for policy makers, academics and anyone interested in the role that Government policy can play in raising the sustainable rate of economic growth.
Notes to editors
The twelve papers published in the volume were presented at a seminar held at No. 11 Downing Street on 12 October 2000. They cover a range of issues divided into four main subject areas: the growth framework and government policy; human capital; product market and total factor productivity; and investment.
