Development Success: Historical Accounts from More Advanced Countries
Augustin Fosu ()
No 71, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)
Based on eleven themes, this paper synthesizes in-depth case studies that present historical accounts on the development `success´ for a number of more economically advanced countries. The coverage includes Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden), non-Nordic advanced countries (Ireland, Japan, and Switzerland) and transition economies (Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland), along with their respective country grouping syntheses. The overall thematic synthesis finds that the historical accounts are replete with recurrent attributes, which are likely to prove useful as development strategy guides for certain developing countries with the proximate conditions.
