Summary
"This book brings together contributions from leading authorities on economics and political philosophy to survey current barriers to growth, including problems with policy and problems with concepts and thinking. Getting policies right, the contributors stress, is a complicated task in itself, but it also may not be enough; instead, people in both the developed and developing worlds may also need to reconsider basic and time-worn beliefs about facts, values, the measurement of data, rights, needs and the nature of government." "Of interest to economists and policy makers, Development Dilemmas is a long-awaited addition to the debate over economics and political philosophy in the developing world."--BOOK JACKET
