World Trade Patterns and the Developing Countries, 1970–2000

  • Angus Hone


It is best to make it clear there is very little of value in ‘The Limits to Growth’ and the problems of the developing countries are almost wholly ignored. Pollution is almost wholly a problem of development and the developing countries face far more serious problems of ill health, disease, food and protein shortages and persistent poverty. The Meadows’ contribution has fortunately been condemned savagely by Professor Beckermann and Dr Mahbub al Haq. The subsequent debate has revealed many basic weaknesses in the ‘zero growth’ position and it is hoped that a clearer appreciation of the problems of developing countries has now developed.
