Development Policy — Theory and Practice Edited by Gustav F. Papanek. Harvard, 1968.

M. Anisur Rahman


The Development Advisory Service (DAS) of Harvard University
has its wings spread over a big empire by now and a volume like this
bringing together some of their experiences should be of considerable
interest. The volume contains ten contributions plus an evaluation by
the editor. Two questions receive special attention: import
substitution, and inflation-cum-exchange policy, to each of which three
papers are devoted. Four rather isolated contributions on econometric
models for development planning, sales taxation in Columbia,
agricultural development in Pakistan and labour scarcity in Liberia
complete the collection.
