The phrase "third-world development" is loaded.
Now that the Iron Curtain is down, which are the "first" and "second" worlds, and what exactly do we mean by development?
Given a definition, is development working? Are underdeveloped nations getting better?
With David Ellerman, let's discuss:
- Where are we in the arc of development?
- What seems to work? How can we tell?
- What doesn't work? What are the symptoms?
