Foreign Trade, Industrialisation and Development Policies: a Comment
My comments will be divided into three parts. The first part is related to Ffrench-Davis’s basic stand with respect to the underlying ‘theories’ we have grown accustomed to see utilised to analyse — and often criticise — foreign trade regimes in developing countries. The second part deals briefly with some specific points in his essay, those about which, in Ffrench-Davis’s judgement, ‘conventional knowledge is least relevant, and research in LDCs is most limited’. The third part is a rather brief comment on Ffrench-Davis’s research priorities in this wide, shadowy and changing area.
