The Colombo Plan and Other Essays
By Frederic Benham
Royal Institute of International Affairs, 1956, 89 pp

An eminent British economist who is now Henry Price Professor of International Economics at Chatham House, Mr. Benham has spent most of the time since 1942 in official positions in the West Indies and Southeast Asia. The five essays in this small book discuss clearly and cogently such basic problems of economic development as overpopulation, price stabilization, tariff protection, deficit financing, and the ability to absorb foreign aid.
