Development Modelling The State of the Art



    (Erasmus University, Rotterdam (Holland).)


After a brief historical survey starting around 1930, the article discusses some of the main new concepts used in development models. Thus, the Domar-Harrod principle, planning in stages, input-output, and two-gap models are discussed. From national models we have now attained a point of world models. The newest developments are characterized by the introduction of income distribution variables, the informal sector, appropriate technologies and environmental variables. New uses made of models recognize the existence of more than one policy maker, or alternative groups in power as wen as ~'interactive multiple goal planning".
