The Dynamics of Socio-Economic Development: An Introduction / Edition 2by Adam Szirmai
Pub. Date: 03/14/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Why are poor countries poor and rich countries rich? How are wealth and poverty related to changes in nutrition, health, life expectancy, education, population growth and politics? This modern, non-technical introduction to development economics takes a quantitative and comparative approach to contemporary debates, examining historical, institutional, demographic, sociological, political, cultural and ecological factors. Chapters contain comparative statistics from twenty-nine developing countries and assume no prior knowledge of economics.
