Overview

Twenty papers express the appreciation of colleagues, former students, collaborators, and friends for the work of eminent development economist Taylor. During his some three decades of teaching, he has emphasized that economic development is highly constrained by conflicts over income distribution and its outcome shaped by public interventions. The general themes are approaches to development and planning; finance and asset markets; stabilization, adjustment, and growth; beyond neo-liberalism: the firm, industrial policy, and competitiveness; and The North, The South, and globalization.
