Product description


This book raises critical policy issues that have plagued economists ever since Pareto...Financial solutions derived from a narrow compensation theory can neither improve, nor restore incomes...The authors put forward novel solutions for de-pauperizing those displaced: targeted investments and benefits-sharing, additional to compensation. Development analysts, economists, policy makers, and practitioners stand to gain from...this book. (Irma Adelman, Professor in the Graduate School, University of California, Berkeley)
