Fifty Years of Pakistan's Economy: Traditional Topics and Contemporary Concerns
Shahrukh Rafi Khan
Oxford University Press, 1999 - Business & Economics - 499 pages
This volume approaches Pakistan's economic system as a laboratory wherein a half-century's worth of fashionable economic ideas have been imported and tested. A related theme explored in this collection of essays is Pakistan's transition from more traditional macro and sectoral issues to a new set of concerns. Such interests include gender and development, specifically defined attempts at poverty alleviation, sustainable human development in the broad sense, and the environmental impact of economic development.
