From the Back Cover:

Economic Development: Theory and Practice for a Divided World presents contemporary coverage of key development topics such as human capital, technology, the environment, and population growth. The book was written with three guiding principles:

  1. Both the market system and government policy can work together to address the widening gap between rich and poor countries.
  2. Economic debate is important to understand because it has led to the current views of development.
  3. The application of development theory is best illustrated through diverse country case studies and real-world situations.
KEY FEATURES

Case Studies: 35 cases present economic issues being faced by developing countries such as Taiwan, Brazil, India, China, Ghana, Mexico, and Thailand. Supporting case questions appear at the end of the chapters.

Development Spotlight: 24 Development Spotlight boxes illustrate and apply key theoretical concepts to real-world situations.

Stuart R. Lynn is Associate Professor of Economics and Global Studies at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts.

In Dar es Salaam, he reported on all economic issues, including Tanzania's negotiations with the International Monetary Fund. Professor Lynn also spent seven years at the State Department in Washington, D.C., working on issues of trade, investment, and petroleum in developing countries.
