The eleven papers in this symposium study questions about the factors contributing to long-run growth. One group of papers deals with savings and investment decisions, another with welfare aspects of fiscal and monetary policy, and a third with human capital accumulation and its external effects. Finally, one paper surveys and assesses methods that may be useful for computing solutions to models of the type that arise in modern growth theory.
