Between E and D,

E is wrong because the phrase " for four decades " doesnt explain anything about 'economic', rather I would say it is wrongly positioned. so E is eliminated.

D is the solution.

A B C can be easily proved wrong. Thanks

I will go with E.

In B, C, and D, the tense is clearly wrong.
In A the tense is correct but the overall sentence is itself wrong.
