Synopsis

'A Strategy for Development provides a thoughtful yet readily accessible overview of current thinking on key development issues. It adds up to a very fine book.' -- Albert O. Hirschman, Prof. Emeritus, School of Social Science, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton NJ'This book offers fresh evidence and clear arguments for an approach to poverty reduction that brings together two ideas sometimes incorrectly thought to be at odds: empowering poor people and creating an economic climate that facilitates investment and growth.' -- Joseph E. Stiglitz, 2001 Nobel Laureate in Economics, Prof., Dept. of Economics, Columbia University, Former Chief Economist and Senior VP Development Economics, World BankThe speeches in this collection-all delivered since Nicholas Stern became Chief Economist of the World Bank in July 2000-reflect insights that Mr. Stern has gained over more than three decades of study and work in development economics. Together they provide an analysis of development experience and an agenda for action in the coming years.
