Ha-Joon Chang

Challenge, 2002, vol. 45, issue 5, 63-97

Abstract: In this fascinating history of economic development, the author shows that, contrary to popular myth, the early development of both Britain and the United States depended on protective tariffs to a significant degree. Why is this history so widely ignored? asks the author.
