505 0  An Introduction to Economic Growth Theory -- The Dasgupta-
       Heal Model -- Recycling as a Source of Regeneration -- 
       Technological Progress. 
520    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. Contents ℓ́Ø An Introduction to
