At a time when many economists were warming to the notion of central planning, Fetter worked to present general economic forces at work in all times and all places. It was the great American economic treatise, and it still holds up after all these years. The date of publication is 1915. It is a massive book at 530 pages.Recall that Fetter is the thinker who upheld the time-preference theory of interest, someone whose writing Rothbard had interest in.

India started on a program of reforms, both in its external and internal aspects, sometime in the mid-eighties and going on into the nineties. While the increased exposure to world markets (a'globalizationa?) and relaxation of domestic controls has undoubtedly given a spurt to the GDP growth rate, its impact on poverty, inequality and employment have been controversial.

Providing an original analysis of unit-level data available from the quinquennial Na

Baldwin not only presents a clear and cohesive view of the model's evolution but also reviews the
