By examining the key factors determining the development prospects of resource-based economies, this collection of essays is making an important contribution to the debate over a key paradox of our times - the failure of resource-abundant poor countries to "catch up" with the growth rates of wealthier countries.' - Edward B.

It addresses the key issue of how to make the primary sector sufficiently productive to provide for investment in both itself and other sectors of the economy.
