This course covers modern theories of economic growth. The formal presentation uses the continuous-time framework in order to equip the students with the formal tools required to analyze continuous-time economic dynamics. Besides looking at growth models, the lecture addresses also related topics like the distribution of wealth and income, exhaustible resources and stochastic growth models.
