THE PAKISTAN DEVELOPMENT REVIEW
Development Policy — Theory and Practice Edited by Gustav F. Papanek. Harvard, 1968.
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.
