Pakistan’s Development

Social Goals and Private Incentives

Gustav F. Papanek

ISBN 9780674652002

Publication date: 01/01/1967

In the 1950s Pakistan was generally considered to be a country that would remain among the poorest in the world, but economic development in the decade to follow exceeded all expectations. Gustav Papanek, in the first thorough analysis of this achievement, shows how Pakistan, partly by design and partly by accident, arrived at a successful blend of private initiative and government intervention in the economy. This book, which includes the only comprehensive industrial survey of an underdeveloped country, sheds considerable light on the problems facing nations in similar circumstances.
