Distribution and economic development: some thoughts and directions

Paul H. Zinszer, Πέτρος Γ. Μάλλιαρης


The purpose of this study is to explore the interrelationship between distribution and economic development. Distribution in this context is viewed both in terms of channel structure (intervening institutions) and physical distribution (functions perfor¬med in the channel). This exploration lacks the vigor of empirical evidence. To this extent, it complies with the existing relative bibliography and body of knowledge. Time series, cross data, multi-country and multi region types of analyses are difficult to conduct, and when they are done they attract criticism. This can be attributed to the complexity of the problem (many variables and factors involved), the inadequate availability of re¬levant data and, perhaps, the inexistence of the right techniques of research.
