Editorial Reviews

Review

Curing emerging market poverty is on everyone's list of priorities along with peace on earth. Yet the success has been dismal. This powerful book may help cure the ignorance of people with pat answers, do-gooders, the Seattle-Prague crowd, and economists who have neglected to keep up with the evidence. Far from dry, the book takes you to the scene, gives you the local color, and challenges you to concede that a lot of your prejudices are just that―yet in the process does not throw economics overboard. Brilliant!

Rudi Dornbusch, Ford Professor of Economics and International Management, MIT --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"A highly readable and iconoclastic treatment of the determinants of economic growth."
Richard N. Cooper, Foreign Affairs

"It is impossible to convey the depth and range of The Elusive Quest for Growth."
Bruce Bartlett, The Wall Street Journal --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
