Economic Development: Theory and Policy Applications


Economists are being asked to provide explanations and prescriptive policy for addressing the questions of chronic poverty and underdevelopment in the world. Answers are needed not only for the questions of how and why these problems arise, but also whether the problems can be prevented and how the problems can be approached. This book is an exposition to the student, the researcher, and the practitioner in the field of economic development giving an approach from the basic rudiments to the advanced level and bridging the gap between the neoclassical models of growth and development and the modern structuralist approaches to the study and analyses of economic development.
