Summary

Stephen Smiths Case Studies connects real economic development problems with theoretical concepts, and offers students an accessible and interesting presentation of material. Within each case, opposing viewpoints are presented in a balanced way, fueling student discussion and stimulating debate. Although it can be used with any economic development text, this supplemental text is an ideal companion to Michael Todaro's Economic Development, 7/e.
