Doing Growth Diagnostics in Practice: A 'Mindbook'
Ricardo Hausmann, Bailey Klinger, Rodrigo Wagner

September, 2008
This paper systematizes the implementation of the Growth Diagnostics framework. It aims to give the meta-steps that a persuasive growth diagnosis should have, and elaborates on the strategies and methods that may be used. Rather than a step-by-step instruction manual or handbook, this paper is meant to be a ‘mindbook’, suggesting how to think about the problem of identifying a country’s constraints to growth.
