Literature Review: Growth problem for Economy

This “Ten Problems for Economy in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. business, 
  2. finance,
  3. policies,
  4. technology,
  5. debt,
  6. labor,
  7. entrepreneurship,
  8. markets,
  9. wealth,
  10. growth.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

10 Growth

THE PROBLEM — Many economists argue that a unified analytical framework of institutions-growth studies is still missing. Governments’ policies worldwide have a top-priority attitude to the issues of managing economic growth. Those who debate policies for dealing with climate change fall into two groups: those who advocate green growth and those who advocate stopping growth. Traditionally, a distinction has been made between short-run demand economic policies and long-run supply-side economic policies, as they pursue different direct goals. New technologies are often expected to be universal vectors of growth.

CONCLUSIONS — Institutions have economically and statistically significant positive effects on economic growth. There are a lot of approaches to managing the economic growth of modern socio-economic systems and sustainable combinations. If green growth measures face difficult political problems, no-growth measures would face many more. Strong statistically significant results for positive impact of decentralization on economic growth only hold for the group of developed countries. Free market forces do not guarantee socio-economic and environmental sustainability. Significant influence of digital technologies is found using indicators on the innovative development of territories, ensuring their socio-economic development and competitiveness. Creation and operation of free economic zones is a perspective direction for innovative activity promotion, investments attraction, entrepreneurial potential revitalization. COVID-19 demonstrates that we face an uncertain future, where anticipation of and resilience to major shocks must become the core problematic of development studies and practice. While some see tradeoffs, others suggest that economic growth and sustainability goals can still be achieved simultaneously after the COVID-19 crisis. Significant changes have occurred in the development of the e-Commerce sector in Russia in the period from February to May 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
