  • REVIEW: The Great Escape by Angus Deaton

    Posted December 08, 2014 by Faisal Bari
    Faisal Bari Quite a few books recently have tried to understand and explain the development process and its outcomes, often by some of the leading economists of out time. Deaton’s book falls in the same category. Though agreements are rare and conclusiveness is hard to achieve, these books are bringing a lot of academic material to the general public. And there is tremendous value in that. Maybe The Great Escape should also be seen in such a light.
