About Alice Amsden
Alice H. Amsden, an expert in economic development who served as the Barton L.
Weller Professor of Political Economy in MIT's Department of Urban Studies and
Planning, died suddenly on March 14 at her home in Cambridge. She was 68.
A prolific scholar, Amsden wrote extensively about the process of industrialization in
emerging economies, particularly in Asia. Her work frequently emphasized the
importance of the state as a creator of economic growth, and challenged the idea that
globalization had produced generally uniform conditions in which emerging economies
could find a one-size-fits-all path to prosperity.
