Comparative perspectives in development economics

Journal of Economic Methodology 6 (3):403-421 (1999)
Comparative perspectives in development economics make extensive use of qualitative and quantitative induction together with deduction, and some-times a narrative, to bring ?facts? together in an interrelated whole. It is a method of inquiry not allied to any single ?world view? though some development economists believe that comparative perspectives (or analytical economic history) are most representative of the classical tradition in development economics. Pattern modeling which is strongly associated with the inductive approach can take account of complexity and diversity, as well as uniformities, in the development experience.
