"Neo" means "new" - the neo-classical growth theory is a "new version" of the classical growth model. The main purpose of another important growth model, the neo-classical growth model, is to explain how it is possible to have a permanent growth in GDP per capita. First, because some fifty years ago a then new field of economic theory emerged aiming to answer similar questions, to address issues about the persistence of underdevelopment and to search for remedies to overcome poverty.

Such accumulation continues until the stage of unconditional convergence as diminishing marginal returns to capital set in. 0 The premise is astonishing for at least two reasons.
