Theoretical Focus

I build on three strands of analysis—macro planning (with nested units of analysis), comprehensive marginality, and the role of the state in equitable economic development. 

The theoretical literature that interests me includes an emphasis on developing countries with a focus on the poorest.  I study theories of economic development with an emphasis on the evolution of the role of the state as studied by scholars in Development Economics, primarily during the period since 1945. 

The literature on these fundamental issues of planning theory that I focus on, identifies a variety of mechanisms and conditions under which the state is willing and able to contribute in decisive ways to achieve economic development through infrastructure provision and cliamte change responses, while expanding freedoms of the marginal.
