Biography of a subject : an evolution of development economics by Gerald M Meier( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of economic development is one of the newest, most exciting, and most challenging branches of the broader discipline of economics and political economy. Although one could claim that Adam Smith was the first "development economist," the systematic study of the problems and processes of economic development in Africa, Asia, and Latin America has emerged only over the past five decades. This biography of the subject of economic development will focus on the essential ideas in the evolution of development thought and policy over the subject's half-century of life. In concise form and avoiding undue technicality, it highlights the influence of development theory on policymaking and on the mixed record of successes and failures in promoting development efforts. The interpretation of theory, policy, and the lessons of experience are covered in three periods: early development economics of the 1950s-60s; orthodox reaction of the 1970s-80s; and the new development economics of the 1980s-90s. Gerald Meier--one of the world's most prominent leading thinkers in the economics of development-- interprets the past treatment of development problems with the present and future in mind. He re-interprets the past two generations of development economists in a contemporary voice. And in a forward-looking fashion, the book's perspectives should make the next generation of development problems-and development economists-more intelligible. The reader is invited to consider whether development economists really know how to put matters right

Pioneers in development by Gerald M Meier( Book )

37 editions published between 1984 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book answers critics of the basic needs approach, views this approach as a logical step in the evolution of economic analysis and development policy, and presents a clearsighted interpretation of the issues. Based on the actual experience of various countries-their successes and failures-the book is a distillation of World Bank studies of the operational implications of meeting basic needs. It explores the feasibility of implementing such an approach as well as ways of measuring performance

Frontiers of development economics : the future in perspective by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )

33 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This forward-looking volume explores the future of development economics against the background of the past half century of development trhought and practice. Outstanding representatives of the past two generations of development economists assess development thinking at the turn of the century and look to the unsettled questions confronting the next generation. The volume offers a thorough analysis of the broad range of issues involved in development economics. It is especially timely in its critique of what is needed in development theory and policy to reduce poverty. An overriding issue is whether in the future "development economics" is to be regarded simply as applied economics or whether the nature and scope of development economics will constitute a need for a special development theory to supplement general economic theory. Thirty-three development economists contribute to the volume

The international economics of development; theory and policy by Gerald M Meier( Book )

31 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If the pace of development has been disappointingly slow, the same can certainly not be said about the outpouring of development literature which has grown so rapidly. This has been especially true for the subject matter of the international economics of development. In recent years, a number of significant contributions have been made to the subject; the relative importance of various issues has changed; and new problems have commanded attention--at both the theoretical and policy levels

Industrial adjustment in sub-Saharan Africa by Gerald M Meier( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new approach to industrial development is needed in Africa because past policies have not been sustainable. Rapid growth from import substitution in the 1960s has given way to decline and capacity underutilization in the 1980s. The extracts in this collection have been taken from a wide range of analytical studies and express a variety of viewpoints on industrial development and adjustment in sub-Saharan Africa. The readings are grouped into three parts. Part 1, "Issues and Experience, " analyzes the experience and underlying strategic issues to provide a context for the following analyses. Part II, "Policy Adjustment, " discusses the need for new industrial strategies and appropriate incentives and describes the experience of several countries in adjusting their policies. Part III, "Institutional Issues, " discusses the institutional changes that are necessary for an adequate response to policy reforms and the constraints that can dampen these desired policy responses and inhibit long-term development. Other topics covered include the business environment, small-scale entrepreneurs, financial intermediation, technology, and public sector management

Les Pionniers du développement by World Bank( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in French and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'pioneers in development' are those whose articles, reports, and books came to dominate thinking about economic development in the late 1940s and 1950s. They shaped the subject by introducing concepts, deducing principles, and modeling the process of development. The 'pioneers' included in this book include: Lord Bauer, Colin Clark, Albert O. Hirschman, Sir Arthur Lewis, Gunnar Myrdal, Raul Prebisch, Paul N. Rosenstein-Rodan, Walt Whitman Rostow, H.W. Singer, and Jan Tinbergen. They have each contributed a chapter in which they have reassessed the main themes of their early work and reconsidered their assumptions, concepts, and policy prescriptions in relation to the way the course of development has preceded since their pioneering days. Each chapter also contains comments by contemporary development economists. Taken as a set, these chapters offer an opportunity for a retrospective view of what has happened to development economics with implications for assessing the present and looking to the future
