Overview

Reorientation from economic controls to a market-based approach led to significant changes in the economic policy of developing countries in the 1980s.

Development Policy and Planning provides a non-technical explanation of the main techniques and models used for economic policy formulation. Each technique is illustrated in application through practical examples.
