As Head of the Economic Planning Unit of Nigeria from 1960 to 1962, Wolfgang Stolper was largely responsible for formulating a plan for the economic development of that country. But his book is not primarily about Nigeria. Extensively illustrated by specific data, it offers valuable insights into the process of making resource allocation decisions in any developing country. The author demonstrates how theoretical concepts can best be put to use in real situations where time, staff, and information are strictly limited, and argues that profitability is the best criterion for investment.
