Book Description

Chalmlee-Wright argues that international aid programmes have often been unsuccessful because they are imported.
The economics of the Austrian School provide a far stronger theoretical framework which can introduce cultural analysis into questions of economic development and other market processes.



Emily Chamlee-Wright is Assistant Professor of Economics at Beloit College, Wisconsin, USA


'This is a good and serious contribution to the debate on economic development in Ghana and on the Austrian school more generally, which deserves to be widely read.' - Modern African Studies, Vol 36, No. 4 98
