Economic Growth and Development Hardback
Edited by Olivier La Grandville
Part of the Frontiers of Economics and Globalization series
Since the very beginnings of economics as a science, which might be dated from Ibn Khaldun's "Introduction to History" (1377), the challenge of making societies escape from poverty and attain some degree of prosperity has always been, and will remain, a fundamental issue.
It was and it is still recognized today that this central venture is multi-faceted.
Inasmuch as investment and technical progress are central in the growth and development process, many other dimensions must be taken into consideration, such as institutions, the openness of the economy, the protection of the environment.
This book will presents cutting edge research on each of these issues and features a preface from Ken Arrow.
