The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics - Easterly, William

Since the end of World War II, economists have tried to figure out how poor countries in the tropics could attain higher standards of living. The problem is not the failure of economics, Easterly argues, but the failure to apply economic principles to practical policy work. Illustrations.
