In this short article I would like to directly address former overseas officers and readers of this journal. I hope to raise your interest in my research program and, even more, to motivate you to participate in a series of interviews. The article will briefly lay out the research program which connects the work of British overseas officers with long-term economic development and with development assistance today. This research program was designed at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton upon the invitation of Prof. Dani Rodrik (now at Harvard University).
