Economy and Growth
In the last decade or so, global poverty has been halved. Virtually everyone escaping destitution during that time lived in China. Capitalist principles overthrew the entrenched lethargies of a state-controlled economy with astonishing effects in urban and industrial development. In this Special Collection we examine that process of growth, and consider the increased competition for natural resources that such rapid development implies.
