Overcoming Structural Barriers to Growth with Equity in Small Developing Countries – Perspectives from Belize


“Many of us were taught in school during the Middle Ages that there was little or no economic improvement over some eight centuries. Then came the industrial revolution, when it comes consistently advanced aid that was extraordinary by any former historical standard. We were then told to draw the conclusion that technical advance was the origin of economic growth and that it was, in fact the central if not the sole cause of the industrial revolution. Since then some economists have argued that inventions in and off themselves aren’t the sole or even the leading source of prosperity. Technological innovation is necessary to growth, but it is as much as consequence of economic opportunities as it is their cause. As the argument goes it is the growth of markets to trade colonisation and domestic expansion, that is predominant factor in Western economic development. The growth of markets was closely associated with rapid flow and of information which is typical product of expanding markets and innovation.”
