How much is growth a do-it-yourself job and how much is it better to beg, borrow or earn from the rest of the world? The best part of this book deals with this question in often original ways. The authors lean toward playing down trade and aid, but definitive answers elude them and there will be debate about some of their methods. Other chapters deal with a number of key issues but do not pull the interesting parts together.
