9780415771566: The Development Economics Reader

This book draws together the most authoritative articles on development economics published in the past few years, is aimed at undergraduate level and is suitable for students with little or no background in economics.

The main themes include poverty, foreign aid, agriculture and human capital, with essays by such luminaries as Amartya Sen, Jeffrey Sachs, Jagdish Bhagwati, Joseph Stiglitz, Paul Romer, Dani Rodrik, William Easterly, Robert Barro, Kenneth Arrow, Hernando de Soto, Daron Acemoglu, Muhammad Yunus, Anne Krueger, Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo, Michael Kremer and Martin Feldstein.

The reader focuses on the most recent and up-to-date contributions to the field of development economics. Instead of collecting "classic" contributions―which are already available through many sources―the articles chosen reflect recent developments in the discipline (for instance, in the area of geography and development) and include contributions that address recent events (the dramatic resurgence of a debt relief movement).

The Development Economics Reader should be an invaluable resource for all students of the discipline.

About the Author:

Giorgio Secondi is an Associate Professor of Economics at Occidental College in Los Angeles, USA.

 

Review:

"The Development Economics Reader, edited by Giorgio Secondi, offers a wonderful introduction to the great themes and debates of development economics. The subject is endlessly fascinating, important, and complex, and the Reader does justice to the richness of the field, and in a manner that is remarkably accessible for students without a technical background in economics. The Reader not only offers a judicious and balanced selection of important articles, but also provides a consistently high-quality introduction for each major theme, as well as review and discussion questions following each article and a valuable annotated list of further readings for each topic."

Jeffrey D. Sachs
Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University
Special Advisor to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon

"This is a comprehensive reader that presents a thorough yet non-technical overview of where the field stands. Highly recommended."
