The methodology of the ‘Central Planning’ for the implementation of the ‘Programming Approach’ (The great role of Jan Tinbergen)

  • Franco Archibugi


It is not possible to close a chapter, in this Trilogy, dedicated, though with a selective purpose, to the work of Jan Tinbergen, without mentioning of the greatest opera that Tinbergen supplied, in seventies, to the United Nations Organisation and to the World Community entire, for the ‘Reshaping the International Order’, called RIO, This is a Report written, under the Chairmanship of Tinbergen, and under his coordination and compilation and inspiring by an international Committee whose members, special experts of different single matters or disciplines (22 members, 11 from developed countries, and 11 members from developing countries) all under the narrow coordination of Tinbergen, has been diffused in the 1977, (also as ‘third study’ of the Club of Rome).
