This lecture discusses some key lessons of development experience and the strategy they lead to. It shows how one can and should do further research on both the processes of development behind the strategy, and on the type of public economics that should inform public action. Aside from presenting a strategy for development, the lecture argues that this strategy provides both a basis for action and an agenda for research. The strategy is based on a review of fifty years of development, which in turn pinpoints some key strategic lessons such as the multiple dimensions of development and the complementarity of states and markets.
