Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Paper focusing on the three variants of endogenous growth as applied to the United Kingdom from 1948-2000. The new growth theory, which took off with Romer (1986, 1987) and Lucas (1988) reemphasises the role of saving and capital accumulation in growth. In this theory technical change is made endogenous9 by making the production function yield increasing returns to scale rather than the neoclassical constant returns to scale. The result is that the contribution of inputs such as capital to growth is greater than in the conventional neoclassical models. Further, the ability of firms to devote more resources to new research10 is linked to some form of market power. In this context the role of such factors as patents, monopolistic competition and protectionism in making possible increased resources for new research are emphasised.
