"Optimal Growth Economics" is concerned with the investigation of the contemporary issues in general economics, and growth economics and in the formulation of optimal growth programs, especially the issue of the sustainability of growth. This book proposes the development of optimal growth economics as a distinct, coherent and practical discipline useful for social choice by using the techniques of mathematical modelling and computing to address a wide range of emerging and enduring issues in economics. A considerable number of optimal economic growth models have been developed in the book to address the crucial issues of different branches in economics, including growth and development economics, economic planning, welfare economics, environmental economics, human capital development, political economy, natural resources and the economics of uncertainty.

...Extends and evaluates the application of optimal growth programming to address contemporary issues of growth economics with national , global, environmental, and ecological growth models. Surveys computational methods for optimal growth models. Journal of Economic Literature ...By providing the justifications for considering optimal growth economics as a separate discipline, integrating the theoretical, computational and applied modeling issues and methods in a single volume, by extending the literature in this area to incorporate recent developments in different branches in economics, including sustainable development, by integrating further welfare economics, social choice and optimal growth, this book has made a substantial contribution to the literature and filled an obvious gap. Journal of Development Studies, 2004 ...The author argues convincingly that as a distinct discipline, optimal growth economics is able to utilise the techniques of mathematical modelling and computing to address a wide range of issues.
