Tim Kane on Paul Romer’s AEA Presentation

+ Brandon Fuller

Which parts of globalization matter for catch-up growth? This was the question Paul Romer asked during a session titled Growth in a Partially De-Globalized World at this year’s American Economic Association conference in Atlanta. Romer pointed out that while the barriers to trade in goods and services receive a great deal of attention, other barriers to the exchange of ideas represent an important obstacle to the benefits of globalization as well.

Tim Kane of the Kauffman Foundation offers an excellent discussion of the talk on the Growthology blog.
