Planing, Power and Welfare

New Delhi: The Office for Asian Affairs, Congress for Cultural Freedom, 1959.

Introduction: (...) In the present volume Daya Krishna questions some of the current assumptions which underlie planning in Asian countries and asks if these assumptions do not, in effect, distort the original purpose with which planning was undertaken. Daya Krishna's thesis is challenged by two eminent economists of Asia, namely Prof. Vu Quoc Thuc of the University of Saigon and Dr. Nurul Islam of the University of Dacca. Daya Krishna, in a rejoinder, replies to their objections.
