Description

Thirty-three development economists contribute to this volume, which looks at the future of development economics in relation to thoughts and practice of the past half century. At the core is the issue of whether development economics is simply a branch of applied economics or whether its nature and scope constitute the need for a special development theory to supplement general economic theory.show more
