Bernardo Kliksberg looks at the commitment of two major religions - Judaism and Christianity - to development. Why has Judaism been ahead of the pack in pushing for the examination and resolution of the key problems of development? He suggests that the answer lies largely in the Old Testament. He also examines the fundamental precepts of church doctrine on this subject. He proposes a synthetic approach, one that arises from both religions' approach to globalization and development.Development (2003) 46, 57–63. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110491
