Abstract

Economic thinking and practice in developing countries have gone through striking changes in theories, doctrines, and practices over the post-WWII period. Yet many of the same issues and obstacles remain. To begin to assess this evolution, this chapter explores the linkages between theories and doctrines. These doctrines are only partially shaped by economic theories; they also reflect changing goals, political considerations, and administrative constraints.
