In a special February 2011 centenary edition, the American Economic Review selected Todaro’s article “Migration, Unemployment and Development: A 2-Sector Analysis” (with J. Harris) as one of the twenty most important articles published by that journal during the first one hundred years of its existence.

"Can easily see concepts from this book and how they apply both domestically and in developing nations, as mentioned specifically in Africa. Can't say I saw any issues with ordering or delivery either."
