As suggested by its title, this volume examines an extensive range of issues related to economic development. There are papers on governance and democracy; ethics, values and corruption; regulation and privatization; as well as trade liberalization and the Uruguay Round. Along the way, the role of population and the characteristics of agricultural development are also evaluated. Overall, the discussion ranges far beyond the economics of development to include its political and cultural connections. The papers were prepared for a conference organized by the Asian Development Bank and held in Mania in late 1994.
