Editors: Tiago N. Caldeira
Book Description:
There are many economic issues especially relevant to developing countries and the third world such as international aid, globalization, free trade, and labor issues. In fact, the mix of them and other economic issues and conflicts over priorities and the urgency to transit to a Developed Country present an often overwhelming array of dilemmas. This new book presents new research on some of these issues.
