Summary Broad beliefs about the economics of developing countries and of the development process have changed considerably due largely to changes in the world and in the application of economic policies within developing countries. The extreme divergence of experience among regions of the world has also made it more and more questionable whether it even makes sense to think of a single and distinctive economics of developing countries. This textbook presents a concise and up-to-date examination of the field of development economics, bringing together historical perspectives, current issues and policy implications.
