The Political Economy Of Basic Human Needs
The Political Economy Of Basic Human Needs
By Bruce E. Moon
Cornell University Press, 1992, 316 pp.

Not surprisingly the effort to link approaches to economic growth, social organization and governmental policies with the satisfaction of basic human needs cannot go beyond a "first cut" at arriving at conclusions.
