Is war necessary for economic growth? : military procurement and technology development by Vernon W Ruttan( Book )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses three questions that have significant implications for the future growth of the United States economy. One is whether changes in the structure of the United States economy and of the defense-industrial base preclude military and defense-related procurement from playing the role in the development of advanced technology in the future comparable to the role it has played in the past. A second question is whether public support for commercially oriented research and development will become an important source of new general-purpose technologies. A third and more disturbing question is whether a major war, or the threat of major war, will be necessary to mobilize the scientific, technical, and financial resources necessary to induce the development of new general-purpose technologies."--Jacket
United States development assistance policy : the domestic politics of foreign economic aid by Vernon W Ruttan( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economist Vernon Ruttan offers a comprehensive review of United States development assistance policy from the end of World War II to the present. His emphasis is on the structures and programs that proliferated over the past fifty years designed to provide underdeveloped countries with technical and economic assistance. Ruttan follows the development of the U.S. Agency for International Development, quasi-governmental agencies, and private voluntary organizations. He also examines U.S. policy toward the World Bank, United Nations agencies, and other international development assistance organizations. Ruttan's interest is not to measure the impact of U.S. assistance programs but to examine the domestic political forces that have directed the development assistance policy of the United States. By this detailed review, he shows how political interests often detrimentally influenced development efforts. Ruttan concludes that the U.S. development assistance program is in disarray and that there is a real need for its deep re-evaluation and restructuring. The last two chapters of the book review past reform efforts and outline Ruttan's own recommendations. A large and important work from one of the most influential development economists active today, this book will serve as a reference both for specialists and for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of development issues
