This book presents a critical view of economic development in the last 50 years and evaluates different approaches taken that led to success or failure. It covers development policies, methods, procedures, as well as development project selection and how the one-size-fits-all approach taken by major players in development resulted in huge waste and disappointments. Global examples and comparisons are used to identify the need for selective strategies and new ways to assure development effectiveness
