  Add to Calendar 2016-03-21 17:00 2016-03-21 19:00 Europe/Paris Pierre Werner Chair/ADEMU Lecture: Growth and the Industrial Revolution

The human race enjoyed many centuries of population growth and artistic and scientific achievement long before the onset of the Industrial Revolution. But sustained growth in the living standards of ordinary working people did not occur even in Europe prior to the 18th century. What took us so long? Why did the change happen at all? In this lecture Professor Lucas will outline an answer, using a version of Gary Becker's “quantity/quality” model of fertility.
