Resource Abundance and Economic Development

By R. M. Auty | Go to book overview

raised from resources to improve the rate of return to the investment options available to the poor—especially in human capital—instead of increasing the availability of consumption goods directly. They can invest in high quality education, viewing schooling as an investment good. In this way, the virtuous circle of rapid human capital accumulation with equitable growth is achievable by all countries. Certainly, resource abundance creates more challenges in getting the virtuous circle moving, but if the governments of those countries can overcome the challenges, the poor can become an engine of growth, and not only its beneficiaries.
