Endogenous growth represents an evolution of economic theory whose potential does not seem to have exhausted: recent models of the diffusion of ideas tailor a sharp and intriguing perspective on the very significance of progress in the contemporary advances economies. Of particular interest is the fact that, in the theories of endogenous growth, the relevance of human capital can be discussed in terms of explicit variables which drive the growth of the economy. A short account is set forth of the major contributions to the development of a theory of endogenous growth, in first instance the papers by Paul Romer (1986, 1990), in order to pinpoint the economic ideas underlying such a revolution, most notably, learning by doing, increasing returns and knowledge externalities. A recent paper by Schianchi and Mantovi (2016) seems to tailor innovative methodological lines for the representation of endogenous growth.
