Economic Development: A Regional, Institutional, and Historical Approach
M.E. Sharpe, 2007 - Business & Economics - 320 pages
This innovative introductory text on economic development takes a regional approach, with the theory developed within regional contexts. This leads to the second innovative aspect, an emphasis on institutional structures unique to each region. Third, the authors analyze the development process within the historical context of each region, and consider institutional inheritance from both the pre-colonial and colonial eras and in contemporary times.
Thoroughly classroom tested, the text requires no previous courses in economics, although basic principles of economics would be useful. An Instructor's Manual with discussion questions, a test bank, and PowerPoint slides is available online to instructors who adopt the text.
