About this product
- DescriptionThese case studies by an international roster of development ecomists provide valuable insights into the difficulty of establishing answers to the fundamental question of why nations grow at different rates, with inequitable patterns of wealth and income distribution.The case studies of Colombia, Chile, Thailand, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, the Philippines, Mexico, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Argentina, Brazil, Nicaragua, Zambia, and Senegal look at each country from the perspective of its own history and institutions, bringing to light factors that condition observed performances.The country studies are framed by introductory chapters by Lance Taylor. Taylor discusses the ideas underlying the cases and summarizes their implications. He sets current policy in a broader context surrounded by initial and boundary conditions on ecomic reform relevant for the 1990s: prior debates in development ecomics; the theory of the state; currently popular options for ecomic stabilization and adjustment; and trade, industrial, and agricultural strategies. Drawing on results of the country studies, Taylor also sets up a vel 3-gap macroecomic model to calculate foreign resource requirements for growth.Lance Taylor is Professor of Ecomics at the Massachusetts Institute of Techlogy.
