Development Economics/HirschmanVsTradition/Hirschman: Against the prevailing view of "balanced growth" - designed by experts and planners - as a way out of deadlocked development traps, he drafts a strategy of "unbalanced growth". At the heart of this is the idea that economic development requires deliberately generated imbalances in order to evoke reactions from economic actors. (1)
Decisive here are the experimental actors who seize their chances for "linkages".
