About the Economic Growth Center
The Economic Growth Center, since its founding in 1961 by faculty in the Economics Program at Yale University, has had the objective of studying and promoting understanding of the economic development process within low-income countries and how development is affected by trade and financial relations between these countries and those that developed earlier. The Center facilitates and coordinates the research and training of its faculty who have diverse scholarly specialties and interests.
The Economic Growth Center celebrated its 50th Anniversary in November 2011.
