In this collection of essays on economic liberalization, Deepak Lal, one of the world's leading development economists, discusses why many developing countries have followed policies which have retarded both growth and quality before addressing why and how they have decided to reverse these policies. The role of ideas, interests and ideology are explored, as is the importance of difference in initial resources. Simple political economy models are developed to explain the actions of the governments concerned. An intellectual biography is included which outlines how Professor Lal's practical experience in the Third World led him to overcome his upbringing and to become a neo-liberal development economist.
