Long DescriptionThis introductory text is aimed at undergraduate students of development economics who want their study to be augmented by real-world and applied material. All standard topics in economic development are covered. Modern interest in economic development dates from the 1940s and this book traces the unfolding ideas on economic development, their impact on policy and the consequences of development strategies. Unifying themes are policy choices between industry and agriculture and between open and closed trade strategies. By providing numerous case studies the book also emphasizes the diversity of developing countries. Although the book begins by looking at the evolution of economic thinking it does focus on current issues such as endogenous growth theory, gender, the environment, sustainable development and poverty alleviation. Attractive layout and learning features such as case studies, applied material and further reading help make the subject accessible to intermediate students.

This is the first version of our app that is available to the public. This version is mostly an interface to our mobile web site with a few helpful tools layered over the top.

As we improve the app, we will be making it more powerful and more focused to give you more control and a better user experience.

For now the main features are easy access to the barcode scanner (your camera) and text searching.

Many more features are in the works including more actions than simple product lookups for your barcode scanner. But for now, we hope that this initial version adds some value and improves the user experience as you use the EAN Data that we have to offer.
