The Hoover Institution hosts Sustaining Economic Growth: Fall 2022 Conference Of The Working Group on the Foundations of Long-run Prosperity on November 17–18, 2022.

The Fall 2022 conference of the Working Group on the Foundations of Long-Run Prosperity explores the conditions that promote sustained economic growth by focusing on questions of first-order importance. Given the long expanse of human history, why did economic growth take so long to begin, and why was growth then punctuated by long periods of stagnation? What types of innovations have proved most consequential in spurring growth—new products that disrupt industries or incremental improvements to existing products? Why, if best practices for encouraging entrepreneurship and designing infrastructure are widely known, has their adoption been unevenly dispersed across the globe?
