Manuel F. Montes
No wp-2018-94, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

In the past half-century, these countries raised agricultural productivity faster than population growth and displayed sufficient state capability to direct change towards a respectable level of industrial development.
