Theory of Uneven Development
A main purpose of The Other Canon is to develop a Theory of Uneven Development, and with it the tools and policies needed for poor nations and regions to achieve decent living conditions through their own economic activities, rather than as welfare recipients. An important tool for building such a theory is the History of Economic Policy, documenting the policies used by presently rich countries as they went from poverty to wealth. The History of Economic Policy is a discipline that differs significantly from the history of economic thought. A main reason for this difference lies in the large discrepancies between theoretical economics and the policies that have actually been carried out, both historically and presently. To exemplify: we seek to document the actual policies carried out in England rather than what Adam Smith recommended England to do.
