Global Development Network moved its Headquarters to India


Here is an email that I recieved form GDN as a regular subscriber. I suggest that the best thing Pakistanis can do is read William Easterly's classic article and I need not to say anything.

"The Political Economy of Growth Without Development: A Case Study of Pakistan"

Here is the email excerpt:
