  • Din, Musleh-ud


This paper introduces international capital mobility in a general-equilibrium model of a small developing economy which is characterized by a dualistic economic structure. The model is then used to analyze the positive and the normative aspects of development policies that are often recommended for achieving employment-related objectives in developing economies.
