International problems of economic development : address by Irving S. Friedman to the Canadian political science association (English)

This report discusses the remarks delivered by Irving S. Friedman to the Canadian political science association. He discusses on three major features of the problems that confront economists dealing with problems of development at an international level of action and policy. The first is the question of burden-sharing-on what principles is the quantum of aid to be divided among the aid-givers?; second group of problems of development, namely, the role of economics in the practical task which the developing countries face in promoting development with resources and with external assistance; and third, finding ways in which one can assist the developing countries in the mobilization of resources for development.
