A. P. Thirlwall
This volume brings together 17 essays written by A.P. Thirlwall between 1970 and 1995 in the field of growth and development. The essays present contributions such as the author's formalization of Kaldor's two-sector growth model, his models of growth constrained by the balance of payments, his testing of the IMF's supply side approach to devaluation and his development of models of inflation, population and economic growth. Other essays are more reflective and eclectic, such as papers on Keynes and economic development, on the terms of trade and international debt, as well as an essay in praise of development economics. The book also includes an introductory essay in which Professor Thirlwall explains how he became a development economist.
