[Excerpt] It is a privilege to discuss Todaro’s paper. The material is presented clearly, succinctly, and fairly. Todaro claims credit where he has earned it, gives credit where it is due, and withholds credit where it is not due. On the whole, the resulting document is an accurate survey, valuable both to practitioners in the field and to newcomers.
