Economic Growth in the 21st Century: Perspectives, Role of Governmental Policies, Potential and Constraints

Cody Accosi (Editor)

Series: Economic Issues, Problems and Perspectives
BISAC: BUS069000

The Global Financial crisis that led to the Great Recession resulted in differing levels of economic turmoil across developed industrialised economies, with particularly acute implications for eurozone countries where it triggered a sovereign debt crisis given their fundamental lack of economic cohesion and appropriate policy tools. This book discusses the foreign direct investment and economic growth in OECD countries.

It also discusses the economic growth and self-consumption in oil producing countries; the drivers of economic growth in Latin America; financial education and economic growth; regional development strategy, market segmentation and economic growth; religion, work ethic and economic growth in modern Turkey; and being happy in uncertain economic times.
