The list author says: "This is a list of those books that I have found extremely useful in teaching economics courses, and recommend above all others for their respective subject."
The Puzzle of Latin American Economic Development
1.  The Puzzle of Latin American Economic Development by Patrice M. Franko
The list author says:
  "There is no more current, exhaustive, and well-written undergraduate level survey of economic conditions in Latin America.  I use this book for teaching "Economic Development of Latin America.""

Development Economics
2.  Development Economics by Debraj Ray
The list author says:
  "Rather than try to survey the entire "developing world," this book provides students with the tools and theory to start their own research and investigation.  The book is challenging, comprehensive, grounded in economic theory, and "worth it" for both the student and the teacher."
$92.80   Used & New from: $20.00

Economic Growth (2nd Edition)
3.  Economic Growth (2nd Edition) by David N. Weil
The list author says:
  "The price is frustrating, but there is no better book for undergraduate economic growth.  I have seen it taught in development courses as well, however I believe its best use is a focus on macroeconomic growth."
Used & New from: $59.97

The Economics of Microfinance
4.  The Economics of Microfinance by Beatriz Armendariz
The list author says:
  "I try to shoe-horn this book into Latin American Development or Economic Development courses when I can.  If ever I get the chance to devote a semester to microfinance, this book will be the central text."
$26.67   Used & New from: $10.04
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)
