Critical Issues in Asian Development: Theories, Experiences, and Policies
Focusing on Asia, site of the world's most dynamic economies, Critical Issues in Asian Development brings new insights to long-standing debates in development economies and international trade theory. The book's ten contributors, each a leading authority in the field, clearly and succinctly address themes relevant both to the countries of Asia and the rest of the developing world. Environmental preservation and sustainable development are the topics of the chapter by Partha Dasgupta, who analyzes the impacts on the natural environment of market and government failures and entrenched poverty. Robert Repetto continues with a discussion of related dynamics, as he considers the influences of trade liberalization on sustainable development.
