In spite of the importance, strong empirical evidence has eluded the topic of the sources of economic growth.
This article contributes to the subject by considering countries as large organizations, whose competitiveness depends on the quality of their business administration areas: strategy, marketing, information systems, human resources policies and so on.
Under this perspective and for a sample of 33 countries during an homogeneous five year period, it is possible to explain 90% of the variance in income per capita.
