Even a small level of economic growth can facilitate higher living standards and an improvement in life expectancy. In this paper, we extend production function models of economic growth to account for two additional variables that microeconomists have identified as fundamental components of human capital: work experience and health. The net impact of economic growth is influenced by its rate, means adopted to achieve it and distribution of its benefits. Richer countries are generally more peaceful, too.

As economic growth is measured as the annual percent change of National Income it has all the advantages and drawbacks of that level variable.
Otters, for instance, were present in only 6% of 3,300 sites surveyed by the Environment Agency in 1977-79; in 2009-10, they had spread to 60%. If economic growth occurs more slowly than the population growth, then there can be economic growth, but the average person is less well-off. Economist Edward Lazear, Chairman of President George W.

Germany for example has no minimum wage law. Schools and healthcare facilities have been built by non-government groups all over the world, even in countries that already have extensive government programs in this area. A couple of recent papers—a theoretical one by David Tilman of the University of Minnesota and an empirical study by Ben Phalan of Cambridge University, looking at data from Ghana and India—suggest that land-sparing wins. What could the channels of this possible negative effect be? Investment - the accelerator effect - rising demand and output encourages investment — this sustains growth by increasing long run aggregate supply 4. However it is expensive for a government to provide such services, so they'll have to collect money from the citizens of the country to finance such programs.
