Frontiers of Development Economics
Publication date: December 2000
This book helps us to understand development economics in light of the past half-century ' s experience of development thought and practice. This volume is an outgrowth of an intergenerational symposium on "" the Future of Development Economics, "" held in Dubrovnik in May 1999. It collects the papers presented at Dubrovnik by the representatives of the first and second generations of development economists. They look toward the unsettled issues that will confront the next generation. About 15 discussants comment on the main papers. At the end, two appendixes offer reflections on the future by several Nobel laureates and first-generation pioneers.
