Deepak Nayyar, Catch Up: Developing Countries in the World Economy .  Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2013.  xvii + 221 pp. $45 (hardcover), ISBN: 978-0-19-965298-3.

Chapter seven focus on the performance of fourteen individual countries identified as leaders.  The author considers four countries in Latin America, eight countries in Asia and two countries in Africa.  These examples, encompassing a wide range of endowments, transition paths and development models, highlight the diversity of approaches that can produce successful outcomes.   The broad lessons that emerge are the importance of physical infrastructure and access to education (called initial conditions by the author), enabling institutions to support the process of industrialization, and supportive governments.

Chapter eight address the evolution of poverty and inequality across countries and people.  While inequality across countries has declined since 1950, inequality within countries, including developing countries has increased.  Similarly, poverty rates have declined somewhat since 1980 but the number of people classified as poor (living below PPP $1.25 and PPP $2 per day) remains substantial.  While Asia has driven the catch up process that is the central theme of this book, it remains home to over seventy percent of the world’s poor.

"Nayyar comprehensively covers the current state of knowledge on historical trends of economic growth and development, including various associated phenomena such as trade, population growth, and international investment... Nayyar's work can serve as an excellent introduction for undergraduates, or for graduate students approaching the subject for the first time. This comprehensive introduction to the big picture of historical patterns of economic growth is a valuable addition to the literature... Highly recommended." --CHOICE
