Economic Development & Development Geography

Economic development is the increase in the standard of living of a nation's population associated with sustained growth from a simple, low-income economy to a modern, high-income economy.[1][2] Its scope includes the process and policies by which a nation improves the economic, political, and social well-being of its people.[3]
