Tara Abrahams (Editor)

Series: Economic Issues, Problems and Perspectives
BISAC: BUS069000

Although the U.S. economic recovery seems to be on solid footing nearly five years after the official end of the Great Recession, this recovery remains slow compared with past recoveries. This book begins with a discussion on the possibility of restoring economic growth in the United States without a housing boom.

It then continues to discuss the stimulating GDP growth and employment in the Euro area; Brazil after the neoliberal period; economic growth in China; cognitive human capital and economic growth; the strategic growth approach as a relevant economic growth modelling for the 21st century; economic growth, integration and research development in the European Union; and the inclusive growth impacts of fiscal policies in Asia.
