'This is a book that succeeds in striking a good balance between general theory and specific applications. It reads well and is perfectly accessible to students. The book represents a marked improvement on several recent textbooks on the same subject, and is unique in that it strikes a careful balance between different geographical regions of the world.' Professor David E. Hojman, University of Liverpool, UK 'In fewer than 300 pages Dr Siggel offers us a comprehensive and superbly written treatment of development micro and open macroeconomics from a policy perspective. Carefully built numerical examples and problems, mostly drawn from the author's first-hand field experience, show the reader the relevance of sound theory as well as both the potential and limitations of the analytical tools used by practitioners.' Professor André Martens, University of Montreal, Canada Printed Pages: 298.
