GSSC 2013

Fourth Graz Schumpeter Summer School

July 1-6, 2013


Innovations, Institutions and Economic Dynamics


In today’s globalised world great disparities in economic development exist between industrialised countries and transitional economies. What are the driving forces behind dynamic and rapid change in economies and why do some countries, despite overall tremendous progress in the past decades, fail to develop and improve economically?

The Summer School 2013 will analyse the evolution of economic systems with a focus on how institutions matter in the dynamics of growth. Special attention is given to the analytical methods and tools suited to deal with complex economic developments and to alternative approaches to the problems at hand. The school addresses PhD students and young researchers (Junior Fellows) working in the fields of Evolutionary Economics, Institutional Economics, Economics of Growth, Globalization and Development Economics, and History of Economic Thought.
