Summary: "The growing pains of the emerging nations of the modern world are manifold. Any new country is hard pressed to establish institutions and policies that will effectively promote the welfare of its people. Such programs require planning, and this book deals with the developments of national growth plans. The basis of a development plan must be a thorough-going analysis of the national economy in terms of its resources, work force and industries. Political, social and educational goals must be established; the pace of their achievement must be integrated and the schedule of their development must be tied to the growth of the economy." -- From the back cover.
