This book seeks to produce a credible theory of development that takes the needs, capacities and limitations of the poorest rather than richest people and societies as its starting point. The idea of development still exercises a powerful influence on theory and practice in both DCs and LDCs, where it operates as a set of normative goals, policy programmes and teleological expectations. These have generated processes of institutional and policy reform designed to maximize freedom, prosperity, equity and cooperative interdependence by creating open science-based institutional systems since the start of the modern era.
