About the Book

Development, Displacement and Disparity: The last quarter of the twentieth century. The book is a collection of essays that tackle a crucial theme in developmental economics and planning. The essays:

  • look at the inequities and disparities of national resource distribution, and the need for a more equitable distribution of national developmental gains.
  • reflect a growing concern with many economic theorists over uneven regional development and the need for these issues to be looked at seriously, with a view to attend to them in the best possible ways.
  • are on the one hand a theoretical exposition of the economics of public goods supply, but on the other, they point to the lag between theoretical and academic understanding and practical initiative.
  • study the areas, evaluate the models of development and suggest new areas of research in development planning.
