What new directions will development take in the next century? A distinguished group of experts on economic development debated this question in late 1996 at a symposium at the IDB's headquarters in Washington, D.C. This volume brings together their views on such topics as macroeconomic stability, savings, human resources, employment, equity and the role of the state.
