Table of contents
'The impressively broad range of issues in global economics that are covered in this volume bring out not only the diversity of problems that are all quite important for development in the contemporary world, but also the fact, in which there is reason to take some pride, that WIDER, as a new institute of research, has been able to contribute substantially to such a variety of fields, informed by a good understanding of the need for coverage as well as quality.' - From the Foreword by Amartya Sen
'Contains excellent essays on the dynamics of economic development ... The vastness of this book's coverage makes it impossible to do justice to its contents ... the book is an excellent survey of the thinking on development.' - S.L. Rao, The Hindu
