Instead, more in line with the Poisson technology that governs the arrival of innovations, both in Schumpeterian and in patent race models, Aghion et al. (2002) use a semi-parametric estimation method in which the expected flow of innovations is a piecewise polynomial function of the Lerner index. 1 Appropriate Institutions From Schumpeter to Gerschenkron By linking growth to innovation and entrepreneurship, and innovation incentives in turn to characteristics of the economic environment, new growth theories made it possible to analyze the interplay between growth and the design of policies and institutions.

Finally, in Eastern Europe, a new financial intermediation system has been created allowing for credit to households in some segments of the market, but there is still some way to go. Behind the slow implementation of reforms and/or the objections raised against liberalized financial markets, we find the idea that there are upfront costs that may be deterring. To understand the foundation of these criticisms, we study the medium- and long-term impact of credit reform on the growth and distribution of income in a life-cycle economy populated by agents who differ in their ability to acquire human capital.
