Product description

Review

Reinhert presents a revisionist account of economic ideas based on free
trade. -- Publishing News 1 September 2006

'Reinert asks the most fundamental questions about economic
development, and proceeds to answer them with clear logic, a sweeping grasp
of history and an immensely readable style.'
-- Network Ideas, 28 June, 2007

It lands powerful punches and leaves the thoughtful free-marketeer
wondering indeed whether we've forgotten so much economic history that what
we think we know today ain't actually so. Moses Abramovitz would be proud
of his protege. -- The Sunday Telegraph

It lands powerful punches' -- The Sunday Telegraph 06/07 The Sunday Telegraph 06/07

Unlike much of the writing produced by opponents of globalization,
these are serious books by serious people. They deserve to be read.'
-- Reviewed alongside H-Joon Chang's book in the Financial Times

`Reinert asks the most fundamental questions about economic
development, and proceeds to answer them with clear logic, a sweeping grasp
of history and an immensely readable style -- Network Ideas - 28 June, 2007

Book Description

Shows how rich countries developed through a combination of government intervention, protectionism, and strategic investment. This work suggests that this set of policies in various combinations has driven successful development from Renaissance Italy to the modern Far East.
