World Economic Survey 1961

World Economic Survey 1961 focuses on industrialization and economic development, following the request by the Committee for Industrial Development for a review of industrialization in underdeveloped countries during the 1950s. The Survey also examines recent trends in the world economy, analysing the recent situation in the industrially advanced private enterprise economies. Special attention is paid to the recovery in North America and to the slackening of economic growth in western Europe and Japan.
