‘Peter Bauer and the Economics of Prosperity’

Peter Bauer was an unlikely revolutionary, yet he inspired a revolution in development economics. In an environment dominated by a poverty of clear economic thought, Bauer built his theories of economic prosperity. He fought to free the poor from the tyranny of poverty. With the recent spread of anti-market, anti-trade, and anti-migration movements in many parts of the world, it is important that we take a fresh look at the way Bauer exposed the fallacies behind these protest movements. He showed them to be anti-poor and anti-people, and to be exacerbating global poverty. This volume is an attempt towards helping in introducing the ideas of Peter Bauer to a new generation of readers.

Dr Anthony Daniels is a medical doctor and is the author of From Zanzibar to Timbuktu. He writes for The Spectator , as Theodore Dalrymple, and is a contributing editor of The City Journal of New York.

Professor Deepak Lal is the James S Coleman Professor of International Development Studies at the University of California at Los Angeles, Professor Emeritus of Political Economy at University College London, a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute and the President of the Mont Pelerin Society.

Dr Razeen Sally is Director of the European Centre for International Political Economy in Brussels and on the faculty of the London School of Economics
