A critique of welfare economics by I. M. D Little( Book )
113 editions published between 1950 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 1,520 libraries worldwide
Little showed that the welfare theory of the time could be based directly on individual market choices, and that resort to traditional utilitarian concepts was not essential. The book is reissued at the same time as "Ethics, Economics, and Politics" - which explores the overlap between the three disciplines and, in part, displays Little's thinking on establishing rules for government efforts to improve economic welfare. He has added a retrospective preface to Critique in which he assesses the contribution the book made in the light of subsequent literature in the area
International aid; a discussion of the flow of public resources from rich to poor countries by I. M. D Little( Book )
44 editions published between 1965 and 2017 in English and held by 903 libraries worldwide
"This is a comprehensive analysis of the economics of international aid that provides a systematic framework for understanding, planning, and executing aid programs. Though much has been written on different aspects of international aid, this book was the first to synthesize information on all facets of aid and to investigate the consequences, for both donor and recipient nations, of the transfer of public resources in aid programs. The authors first present the history of aid, discuss the principles that govern aid as practiced by the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, the United Nations, and other donors, and then provide a broad theoretical structure in which to discuss particular questions taken up in subsequent chapters. The book systematically covers all aspects of the aid relationship, and in addition to broad coverage of aid programs, analyzes details of the aid relationship to discern the function of the different variables of aid. In one coherent volume, International Aid outlines sound theoretical bases for discussion of aid programs, provides valuable insights into contemporary practices, and offers far-reaching suggestions on the future of aid programs. On first publication in the mid-1960s, in the midst of the Cold War, this book had considerable influence and its interest outlasts its parochial times as one of the first to discuss the effects of aid on both donor and recipient countries."--Provided by publisher

Small manufacturing enterprises : a comparative study of India and other economies by I. M. D Little( Book )
20 editions published between 1000 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 libraries worldwide
Until the 1970s no developing country - except India - showed much concern for promoting industrialization through small manufacturing enterprises. By examining Indian small-enterprise development and policy in detail in an international context, this book draws lessons for industrial policy in developing economies. To provide comparators, the authors assess experiences with the development of small enterprises in several other economies, including Colombia, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The core of the book is an investigation of the claim that the promotion of small enterprises has a special role in industrial policy, for example in facilitating the efficient use of labor and other factors of production. In addition to analyzing aggregate data from national sources, the authors make use of detailed surveys of the Indian shoe, soap, printing, machine tool, and metal-casting industries. They analyze such issues as the relative factor intensity, productivity, and economic efficiency of small enterprises
