Essays on technology adoption under uncertainty, globalization and economic growth

Chinzara, Zivanemoyo (2013) Essays on technology adoption under uncertainty, globalization and economic growth. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examines how the initial institutional and technological aspects of the economy and the reforms that alter these aspects influence long run growth and development. These issues are addressed in the framework of stochastic endogenous growth models and an empirical framework. The thesis is able to explain why developing nations exhibit diverse growth and inequality patterns. Consequently, the thesis raises a number of policy implications regarding how these nations can improve their economic outcomes.
