Notes: "This paper investigates the relationship between nutrition and economic growth at the aggregate level by examining the magnitude of the effects of undernourishment on economic growth and identifying the channels of transmission of such effects (direct effects on productivity and via impacts on health). In addition ... other important relationships are investigated: (1) regional differences regarding the impact of under-nourishment on growth; (b) the impact that possible errors in measuring nutritional variables may have on the robustness of the estimated nutrition-growth relationship; and (c) the existence of "nutritional traps," i.e., the vicious circle of low nutrition-low economic growth-low nutrition"--P. [4] of cover.
