  Hi friend!! When there is economic development and growth in a country, then the citizens of the country are said to be economically active citizens who are healthy and educated and can apply their knowledge and skills for the country's benefit. The Poverty of "Development Economics" is a book by Deepak Lal. Adam Szirmai notes that this book "summarised and popularised much of the earlier criticisms on the dominant paradigm" in development economics and that it "was an influential publication which contributed to the enormous shift in thinking about development." The dominant paradigm that he was criticising is described by Lal.
