The third edition of the widely usedIntroduction to Development Economicsprovides a detailed analysis of the major economic issues confronting less developed countries. Throughout, Subrata Ghatak maintains a balance between theories of economic growth and the realities of economic development. Although the basic principles remain unchanged, the past few years have witnessed changes in emphasis and the rise of new areas of interest. Such issues include development and the environment, the international debt crisis, endogenous growth, the impact of foreign aid, fiscal reforms, migration, human capital accumulation and the problems of trade liberalization. Introduction to Development Economicsis divided into four sections and is written in a straightforward style. This is a comprehensive analysis of the area, with many tables added to provide up-to-date statistical data and technical data in the appendices.
