Easterly and Michael Spence add comments to the previously mentioned Martin Wolf piece on the end of "development experts" discussion.  This from Spence:
Two other points struck me as worthy of attention. One I believe is widely accepted. While a framework can identify the elements of the sustained growth process and the policy ingredients that support it, actual priorities have to be country and context specific, because the initial conditions and the political environments vary greatly. That growth strategies are country specific does not mean that every case is completely idiosyncratic, nor does the fact that collectively we don’t know everything mean that we don’t know anything.
Widely accepted but often forgotten it seems.
