The Science of Economic Development and Growth: The Theory of Factor Proportions
The Science of Economic Development and Growth outlines a new theoretical framework -- one employing scientific method and reasoning -- through which to study and plan for the economic development of poor countries.
This new theory is presented in three parts: first, a full discussion of how countries like the U.S. were able to develop; second, the author proposes that there is a third dimension to understanding growth and development -- material -- which must be considered along with labor and capital; third, the book shows how capital accumulation -- long thought to be a necessary precursor to growth and economic expansion -- is not only unnecessary but can actually lead to "economic hemorrhage", as was the case during the Asian economic crisis.
