The growth theory, put forward by Sir Henry Roy Forbes Harrod is popularly known as a starting of the modern views relating to growth theories. The paper tries to present a survey regarding the development of these modern growth theories of economics starting from Harrod to Romer, who got the Novel Prize for his endogenous growth theory.

Keywords: growth theories, modern growth theory, endogenous growth, evolution.
