The Sudan : a study in economic dualism by Nasreldin Mubarak( )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent economic studies have shown that after the first spurt of economic growth in an underdeveloped economy, it is no longer certain what course development takes. It is obvious that economic growth is unlikely to start at all regions and sectors at the same time and proceed at the same speed. There are, however, reasons to believe that the split of some of the now underdeveloped economies into advanced and traditional sectors may be of considerable width and duration and this split may turn them into "dual economies"."--
Anti-combines enforcement in Canada, 1945-58 by Frank Roseman( )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the purpose of this thesis to report on and evaluate anti-combines enforcement in the period 1945-58. This period has been chosen for two reasons. First, in no period of similar duration has so much serious effort been directed to the problem of dealing with restrictive and monopolistic trade practices. ..."--
An analysis of competition in the pulp, newsprint, wrapping paper, fine paper, and paperboard sectors of the Canadian pulp and paper industry by Francis J Hayes( )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forest resources have been important in Canada's development since the early days of European settlement. However, the exploitation of the forests for the manufacture of pulp and paper is relatively recent. For only in the 1860's were commercial methods for making pulp from wood developed. Prior to this, a pulp and paper industry had been growing in a small way, but based on cotton and rags. Information on this early development is very scanty."--

A theoretical analysis of investment problems in a developing economy with special reference to capital formation in Ghana since 1951 by Godfried Kportufe Agama( )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Political Economy, from the beginning of the seventeenth century until the middle of the nineteenth, was largely preoccupied with the analysis of the nature, causes, and consequences of the increase in the wealth of nations. Indeed, this search for an explanation of the process of economic developnent is one of the main links in the history of economic thought. Undoubtedly, from the second half of the nineteenth century until the first half of the twentieth, there occurred a major shift in emphasis, that is, to value and distribution theory; but nevertheless, a substantial part of the work of writers even during this period was concerned with the subject matter of economic growth. ..."--
India's neutralism : in theory and practice by Blema S Steinberg( )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It has become a truism of international politics to say that the power configuration in the atomic age is vastly different from that which existed during the 18th and 19th centuries--the classical era of European interstate relations. But in what way does it differ and how do these differences affect the position of the would-be neutralist in the mid-20th century? In the belief that hypotheses about both these questions are essential to an understanding of neutrality and its progeny, neutralism, this chapter offers some propositions about the structure of international politics in the pre-atomic and atomic eras."--
International trade and economic development a case study of Trinidad and Tobago by Wilma Monica Augustin( )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The above passage is indicative of the pervasive nature of trade. The importance of trade was recognized, not only by Mercantilist writers who gave it first place in economic development, but even the Physiocrats who relegated it to a subordinate position bad to pay attention to the fact that through trade a country must obtain the goods it cannot produce within its boundaries. Adam Smith also who gave priority to agriculture, stating that capital should first be used in agriculture and the excess invested in trade, paid attention to the benefits that can be derived from international trade. Smith was preoccupied with economic development in relation to the range of the market. The wider the market, the greater the chance for economic growth. He saw trade as the medium of growth via extended markets."--

The role of mortgage banking in the Canadian Economy by Edmond Sussman( )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study is oriented around the belief that it is the role of mortgage banking to tap the flow of available savings for the purpose of providing an 'adequate' of the flow of mortgage funds. The 'adequacy' of the flow of mortgage funds is tested in this thesis by the following criteria: Do the mortgage lenders supply sufficient funds to finance a new residential construction programme of sufficient size to house the new families continually being formed? Do the mortgage lenders supply sufficient mortgage funds to maintain the position of mortgages in the capital market vis-a-vis other forms of long-term debt? Is the mortgage instrument sufficiently attractive to financial institutions to induce them to give mortgages an important place in their investment portfolios?"--
