Contents An Introduction to Economic Growth Theory -- The Dasgupta-Heal Model -- Recycling as a Source of Regeneration -- Technological Progress.
Summary This thesis uses neoclassical growth models to evaluate what effect the limited availability of nonrenewable resources has on the economyℓ́ℓs (worldℓ́ℓs) growth potential. Markus Merz concludes that recycling may serve as a mid-term solution to continued growth, but technological progress is needed in the long-run. The theoretical analysis starts with the well-known Dasgupta-Heal model and considers the effect of recycling and technological progress on the resource constraints; resource-augmenting and backstop technology are analyzed. After a thorough analysis of the models it is concluded that the ultimate solution to long-term economic growth is a backstop technology. Teachers and students of economics with a focus on economic growth theory and natural resource economics ℓ́Ø Executives and consultants in the field of natural resource, energy politics and in energy companies About The Author Markus Merz is a research fellow at the Department of Banking, University of Tuebingen.
