The dynamics of theories of economic growth: An impact of Unified Growth Theory

Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to examine a complex pattern of mutual interdependence
between Unified Growth Theory (subroutine) and the evolution of the entire
field of economic growth theories (main routine) from a philosophical and methodological
perspective. The analysis utilises the recently introduced concept of research
routine (and respectively, subroutine) aimed at an explanation of the evolution of scientific
research. The study identifies the influence of the subroutine (and its specific
concept of demographic transition) on the core concepts of the main routine: human
capital, population growth and learning. The results are based on network analyses of
extensive bibliometric evidence from Scopus and the Web of Knowledge.
