The use of this databank is intended to complement reading
of books and journals and not to supplant it.
The more you read books and journals the more useful my databank will become.
For its purpose is to make available further information, data and analysis
to help the student's own analysis.
The subjects I teach are all interrelated to form a complex
piece of knowledge necessary for understanding the political economy
of the process of development in both industrialized and non-industrialized
societies, which is the only way to understand the latter.
I do suggest you browse all my lectures in all the subjects I teach.
I do suggest you read all the papers and parts of books in
The Robinson Rojas Archive. I do suggest you browse my
Glossary for Development and my Glossary for Economics.
I do suggest, specially, you read my lecture notes on Research Methods.
If one is not aware how knowledge is acquired
then one will never acquire real knowledge.
Finally, a necessary explanation: I did create this databank with
the exclusive purpose of helping my students,
and those who want to learn wherever they are,
and most of all because I believe that knowledge can change
societies...can make them suitable for human beings.
