DESCRIPTION

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.
