In recent times, developing countries across the world have focused on a market-driven approach to address their economic issues. While this has resulted in financial growth, it has also led to a spurt in systemic challenges in many nations.
This volume explores the concerns faced by emerging economies from a present-day viewpoint, with in-depth analysis of key issues in economic development such as growth, market structure, poverty measurement, corruption, financial scams, voting behaviour, informal credit markets, and technology transfer, through the use of theoretical models.
The chapters in this volume have been written in honour of Dipankar Dasgupta and Amitava Bose, two outstanding academicians and contributors to the field of economic theory. With contributions from leading theorists on topics ranging from democracy and development, to patent laws, and environmental concerns, this volume bridges the gap between empirical analysis and a theoretical understanding of emerging issues in economic development.
