We find that electricity use and access are strongly correlated with economic development, as theory would suggest. Despite large empirical literatures and suggestive case evidence, there are, however, few methodologically strong studies that establish causal effects on an economy-wide basis. There is some evidence that reliability of electricity supply is important for economic growth.
Readers Question: What is the difference between growth and development? Can a country experience economic growth without development? Economic growth measures an increase in Real GDP real output. It basically measures the total volume of goods and services produced in an economy. Development looks at a wider range of statistics than just GDP per capita. Development is concerned with how people are actually affected.
It looks at their actual living standards and the freedom they have to enjoy a good standard of living. Absolute Poverty. Do people have sufficient resources to maintain a healthy diet and basics of life such as shelter?
Economic growth may be essential to enable higher incomes for people to be able to buy more food. A key issue is whether the benefits of economic growth are equitably distributed amongst different groups of society. Education standards.
Economic growth may enable more money to be spent on education. However, there is no guarantee that the proceeds of growth will be used to improve education standards. There is often a weak correlation between GDP and literacy rates.
Environmental standards. For example, higher output could cause more pollution. If higher growth involves cutting down forests — this could have adverse environmental consequences in long-term. This may be important for regions which may be cut off from the main areas of economic growth. Measuring economic development is not as precise as measuring GDP because it depends on what factors are included in the measure.
There are several different measures of economic development, such as the Human development index HDI. It is possible to have economic growth without development. This could occur due to:. Economic development means an improvement in the quality of life and living standards, e.
Ceteris paribus , we would expect economic growth to enable more economic development. Higher real GDP enables more to be spent on health care and education. However, the link is not guaranteed. The proceeds of economic growth could be wasted or retained by a small wealthy elite.

Average life expectancy compared to a global expected life expectancy.
Educational standards and labour productivity. Basic levels of literacy and education can determine the productivity of the workforce. Levels of inward investment. For example, China has invested in many African countries to help export raw materials, that its economy needs.
Labour mobility. Is labour able to move from relatively unproductive agriculture to more productive manufacturing? The flow of foreign aid and investment. Targeted aid, can help improve infrastructure and living standards. Level of savings and investment. Higher savings can fund more investment, helping economic growth. Economic growth without development It is possible to have economic growth without development.
For example, if a country produces more oil, it will see an increase in GDP. A country may see higher GDP, but the benefits of growth may be syphoned into the bank accounts of politicians Environmental problems. Producing toxic chemicals will lead to an increase in real GDP. However, without proper regulation, it can also lead to environmental and health problems.
This is an example of where growth leads to a decline in living standards for many. Economic growth can cause an increase in congestion. This means people will spend longer in traffic jams. GDP may increase but they have lower living standards because they spend more time in traffic jams. Production not consumed.
If a state-owned industry increases output, this is reflected in an increase in GDP. However, if the output is not used by anyone then it causes no actual increase in living standards. Military spending. A country may increase GDP by spending more on military goods. However, if this is at the expense of health care and education it can lead to lower living standards.

The paper offers a subjectivist approach to economic growth and an institutional view of development. In particular, the term development regards the prevailing rules of the game and their effects on the key variables for economic activity to take off: property rights and productive entrepreneurship. And growth is deemed to be the result of favourable institutional environments where chances are exploited and individuals succeed in improving their living conditions. Methodological and normative investigation questions the validity of the recent and increasing literature on institutional design, where institutional economics actually plays only a modest role.

To put it crudely, thousands of children still die of malnutrition-related diseases every day, and millions of people still do not have access to clean water.
Institutions and Market Economies pp Cite as. In recent decades, the study of the nature and role of institutions has become a central concern of economists and other social scientists. In part this reflects a preoccupation to establish the fundamental determinants of capital accumulation and innovation, and thereby long-term growth and development.
