The World Economy: A Millennial Perspective

Опубликовано на портале: 28-08-2007
Изд-во: OECD, 2001, 384 с.
The book analyses changes in world income and population over the past two millennia in a comprehensive way, identifies the forces which explain the success of the rich countries, explores the obstacles which hindered advance in regions and countries which lagged behind, and scrutinises the interaction between the rich countries and the rest. As with my earlier books, the causal analysis is supported by an extensive framework of macroeconomic statistics.
