This innovative textbook focuses upon economic policy in the context of developing countries.
The aim is to show how economic theory can be applied to the real and urgent challenges facing the developing world. To achieve its unique policy focus the text includes seventeen country case studies (in the form of assigned questions) as well as comprehensive theoretical coverage.
The topics covered by the book are those most relevant to the developing world such as how to accelerate economic growth, ways in which foreign savings can be used to promote development, and the choice of policies to successfully stabilize inflationary and debt-burdened economies.
The country case studies featured are those most closely illustrative of the theory.
Solutions for nine of the cases are provided in the text; solutions for the other eight are made available to instructors. Development Economics: A Policy Analysis Approach is ideal for undergraduate and introductory graduate courses.
It provides a hands-on guide to making and assessing economic policy decisions in the developing world.
