Empirical results suggest that the most important determinants of economic growth are: a) physical capital investments (especially in infrastructure), b) human capital investment (health and education expenditure), c) financial sector development, d) international trade, government sector (possibly small), f) economic freedom, g) political stability, absence of the high inequalities in incomes and personal property.
