Putting Development First: The Importance of Policy Space in the WTO and IFIs

by

Putting Development First: The Importance of Policy Space in the WTO and IFIs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book examines how far the economic forces and rules that govern the global economy are shrinking the "policy space" available to developing countries in constructing policies to raise living standards. The contributors analyze what room for movement developing countries still have, despite global macro-economic realities, IMF/World Bank policies, and the trade rules regime of the World Trade Organization. They suggest the policies that could be put in place to strengthen developing countries.

Book News Annotation:

The authors of the 11 articles presented here by Gallagher (international economics, Boston U.) are in general agreement that state intervention in national economies has been a significant part of development success since World War II and that current and proposed ruse for the global economy are restricting state policy space for development. Collectively the papers defend this view, describe types of successful development policy, and consider ways that nations can preserve and expand current policy space is order to promote development. Distributed in the US by Palgrave Macmillan.
