The Basic Neoclassical Growth Theory References

The most basic neoclassical growth theory references and links:

  1. David Cass (1965), "Optimum Growth in an Aggregative Model of Capital Accumulation," Review of Economic Studies 32 (July), pp. 233-40.
  2. Peter Diamond (1965), "National Debt in a Neoclassical Growth Model," American Economic Review 55:6 (December), pp. 1126-50.
  3. Tjalling Koopmans (1965), "On the Concept of Optimal Economic Growth," in The Economic Approach to Development Planning (Amsterdam: Elsevier).
  4. David Romer (2001), Advanced Macroeconomics 2nd ed. (New York: McGraw-Hill).
  5. Robert Solow (1956), "A Contribution to the Theory of Economic Growth," Quarterly Journal of Economics 70:1 (February), pp. 65-94.

Hmmm. My guess is that Koopmans's days are numbered. There aren't that many copies of The Economic Approach to Development Planning in the world, and it doesn't seem to be on Jstor.
