Show Summary Details


The last chapter provides a highly condensed summary (in the first section) of the patterns that have been discovered in the determinants of policies and outcomes analysed in the previous chapters. These address (1) poverty and equity, (2) growth performance, (3) stylized patterns of endowments, polity, and economic policy, and (4) nationalism, dirigisme, and liberalization. The final section outlines and defends a ‘classical’ liberal economic framework for economic policy, to promote poverty‐redressing growth, which is supported by the arguments and evidence presented in the book.

Keywords: dirigisme; economic growth; economic policy; equity; liberalism; nationalism; polity; poverty; poverty alleviation
