Economic development, as contrasted from “growth” (in the sense of increase in GNP) has been a subject of interest for less than 50 years. Divergent, perhaps even conflicting views, are expressed on the question of what constitutes, or should constitute, the end‐product of economic development. The article discusses some of the issues relevant to this debate.
