Abstract or Summary
  • Researchers have long sought to understand the relationship between economic growth and social development. The notion that economic growth increases social well-being was first written about by Rostow in 1960. This idea quickly became prominent and well accepted- the foundation of development policy. However, in the past twenty years many have pushed back against the assumption that “a rising tide raises all ships,” i.e. that social well-being automatically increases with economic growth. The resulting debate has been especially pertinent in Oregon where the strategic vision and policy planning call for increases in both economic and social well-being. Early versions of Oregon’s state-wide strategic plan, “Oregon Shines,” assumed that as the economy thrived so too would social development. However, a 1999 research study by Fore and Kissler found that in spite of advances in Oregon’s economic well-being, social well-being had stagnated. This paper further explores the relationship between Oregon’s social and economic well-being.
