The book provides a collection of interesting analytical views on contemporaneous issues of development and international economics such as globalization, brain drain toward developed countries, the European business cycle’s impact on African economies, the importance of capital maintenance for growth, and so on. The research results provided by the authors, of whom several are – or have been – members of the Académie Louvain, can be used as starting points for further development of the various covered fields. The book turns out to be a “value-added” contribution to economic literature advances and a remarkable opportunity to honor the memory of Michel Norro, who had a long-lasting career in teaching international economics and critiquing development policies, with a special focus on those which affect African economies. People interested in African economy analysis have inherited his valuable book Économies africaines.
