Aspects of long run growth in 19th century/ pre-WWI Greece (1833-1910): a tentative approach

Γεώργιος Κ. Κωστελένος, Ε. Αθανασίου, Α. Αντωνίου


The purpose of this work is to shed some light on the characteristics of the growth
experienced in Greece during the first eighty years of its existence. In this respect it is argued that
Greece appears to have experienced a rather moderate growth in per-capita terms during this
period. Furthermore, assuming a steady state economy, there are indications that education
expenditure played a relatively important role in the process.
