In this article, I present a pedagogical strategy for teaching the Solow’s economic growth model in a more “learnable” way. In particular, I develop a learning strategy through the building of economic growth scenarios by “running” widely available economic information in a pre-formatted Excel spreadsheet. This strategy recovers previous pedagogical devices in teaching the Solow’s model and follows seminal approach developed by Denison (1962). This exercise is planned to be useful for intermediate or MBA macroeconomics students. In this presentation, I apply this procedure for the China’s economy.
