Economic Growth

Economic growth was the key that transformed societies from dire poverty to prosperity and well-being. It has brought billions of people out of poverty, and holds the promise of sustaining even higher levels of human flourishing if it continues.


In a new book in AEI's Values & Capitalism series, three professors—Edd S. Noell, Stephen L. S. Smith, and Bruce G. Webb—explore the benefits of growth and address common concerns regarding how growth impacts the poor, the environment, and culture.
