The evolution of the international economic order by W. Arthur Lewis( Book )

39 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do rich industrial nations underestimate the threat to their economic stability posed by demands for a new international economic order? Are the developing countries wrong to assume that their economic advancement depends on a transfer of wealth from the richer nations? Sir W. Arthur Lewis's provocative analysis of the present economic order and its origins suggests that the answer to both questions is yes. Professor Lewis perceptively illuminates aspects of recent economic history that have often been overlooked by observers of international affairs. He asks first how the world came to be d
Development planning; the essentials of economic policy by W. Arthur Lewis( Book )

59 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in 7 languages and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this title, first published in 1978, Sir Arthur Lewis considers the development of the international economy in the forty years leading up to the First World War, with the adoption of the gold standard, a rapid growth in world trade, the opening up of the continents by the railways, vast emigration from Europe, India and China, and large-scale international investment. The book contrasts the relationship between prices, industrial fluctuations, agricultural output, and the stock of monetary gold, considering both the varying patterns of leading economies and then their net combined effect o
