Priorities for Development Economics
Development economics deals with the most fundamental problems of economics - poverty, famine, population growth, structural change, industrialization, debt, international finance, the relations between state and market, the gap between rich and poor countries. Partly because of this, its subject matter has fluctuated abruptly over time in response to political currents in a way which sometimes causes the main issues to be obscured; at the same time it is being constantly added to and modified in every developed and developing country. This series confronts these problems. Each contribution will begin with a dispassionate review of the literature worldwide and will use this as a springboard to argue the author's own original point of view, In this way the reader will both be brought up to date with the latest advances in a particular field of study and encounter a distinctive approach to that area.
