The book points to the unique opportunity today - after 50 years of successes and failures, and with a growing body of analytical work to draw on - to pursue new development strategies in both research and action."--Jacket."@en ;

Drawing on many years of work in development economics - in academia, in the field, and at international institutions such as the World Bank - the authors base their strategy on two interrelated approaches: building a climate that encourages investment and growth and at the same time empowering poor people to participate in that growth. This plan differs from other models for development, including the dogmatic approach of market fundamentalism popular in the 1980s and 1990s." ;
