Economic Growth and Government Policy seminar collates papers on economic growth, and its links to education and other aspects of government policy, presented to a HM Treasury seminar in October 2000 and downloadable as PDF files. Subjects include 'What does modern growth analysis say about government policy towards growth?' (Richard Freeman), 'Public policies and aggregate economic performance' (Tim Besley), 'Supply side policy and British relative economic decline' (Nick Crafts), 'The benefits of education' (Jon Temple). Papers are relatively short, avoid technical presentation, and summarise the state of the art of 'new' growth theory circa 2000.
