Real wages also rose sharply following the Black Death in other places for which we have evidence, such as Spain, Italy, Egypt, the Balkans, and Constantinople (present-day Istanbul). How does the growth of real wages compare with the growth of real GDP per capita as a measure of economic progress?

This division of labour becomes the true dynamic force in Adam Smith’s theory of growth. Viewing economic growth as transitions across growth phases would imply that we would need to move beyond current approaches to growth, and that new "third generation" theoretical models and empirical methods would need to be developed to understand what determines economic growth.
