Economy 7. Oxford University Press, xi, p. Acc No. The world's poor are now catching up with the rich at a rapid pace in terms of human well-being, health, education, and life span. Drawing on 50 years of experience around the globe, renowned development economist Mr. Lal describes developing country realities and refutes misguided notions about economic progress, including the World Bank calculations that exaggerate the extent of poverty, overstated claims made on behalf of microfinance, the resurrection of discredited theories such as vicious circles of poverty, and the need for massive foreign aid to save Africa.
The author also examines Western proposals to deal with climate change and concludes that they pose a great potential threat to the world's poor. Fortunately, liberalization in poor countries makes them less likely to be swayed by the intellectual fads of the West, so that classical liberal economic policies will continue to be the source of progress in the developing world. Routledge, xxiv, p. Thus, in the light of the recent liberalization measure, this book sets to examine general presumptions of the development of informal sector in the context of the Indian economy. The book begins with a broad framework for analysis of output contribution and growth of the informal sector.
Liberalization is measured by openness indices and inter-sectoral linkages.
Heterodox Economics Newsletter
Impact of liberalization on growth contributions of informal sector is captured by openness indices i. The linkages are modeled theoretically in a neo-classical growth theory and empirically measured by sub-contracting arrangements between formal and informal enterprises.
In addition, the book also provides implications on promotion of informal sector from the viewpoint of employment generation. Routledge, xxi, p. Using field research at a local level to engage with larger issues, it raises questions about the varieties and processes of capitalism, and about the different roles played by the state. With its focus on India, the book demonstrates the continuing relevance of the comparative political economy of development for the analysis of contemporary capitalism. Beginning with an exploration of capitalism in agriculture and rural development, it goes on to discuss rural labour, small town entrepreneurs, and technical change and competition in rural and urban manufacturing, highlighting the relationships between agricultural and non-agricultural firms and employment.
An analysis of processes of commodification and their interaction with uncommodified areas of the economy makes use of the 'knowledge economy' as a case study. Other chapters look at the political economy of energy as a driver of accumulation in contradiction with both capital and labour, and at how the political economy of policy processes regulating energy highlights the fragmentary nature of the Indian state. Finally, a chapter on the processes and agencies involved in the export of wealth argues that this plays a crucial role in concealing the exploitation of labour in India.
World development and economic systems: theory and applications Cohen, S I. World Scientific, xvi, p. This book extends the scope of theory and applications by asserting that other distinct behaviors evolve and dominate in other economic systems. Systemic differences arise from distinct social, political and economic behavioral-motivational types that associate with intensive agent activity in household, state and firm settings. External conditions, historical events, and agent interactions ultimately result in domination of one motivational type over others; thus determining distinct profiles of structure, conduct, and performance in different economic systems, that are generally observed in the adopting countries.
The book validates the theory empirically, traces the historical evolution of the respective economic systems in the world regions and evaluates their responses to various systemic failures such as monopoly, uncertainties, externalities and collective needs. The evaluation is extended to structural changes and system performance regarding growth and distribution. It draws on microeconomics, welfare economics, development economics and the international economy.
Paradigm, xiii, p. In this book Frank shows many of the myths of European industrialisation, hegemony and capitalism which have hidden the fact that Asia remained a serious power not just into the 18th century, as Frank himself argued in , but well into the 19th century as well. When Frank passed away his colleagues rallied to finish this book and it is presented here as his final major statement.
Happiness and economic growth: lessons from developing countries Clark, Andrew E. Oxford University Press, xiv, p. A number of chapters in the book set out new evidence to explain why, despite the remarkable rate of economic growth that has been experienced in the country, the average level of happiness in China appears not to have risen. The various arguments raised in these chapters appeal to a number of matters such as increased insecurity, unemployment, adaptation to new higher living standards, and peer comparison. The collection also contains more mitigated points of view with regard to welfare in developing countries, taking as their basis the role of income growth in reducing the risk of low well-being, as well as more generally the inherent difficulties involved when studies attempt to use self-reported well-being measures as a metric of development.
The book has contributions by the best-known researchers in happiness economics and development economics including Richard Easterlin and Martin Ravallion. Several chapters document brand new stylized facts about well-being and economic development. Presents new evidence on the foundations of subjective well-being in China. Focus on the growth-happiness nexus in developing countries.

This book synthesizes existing development economics literature in order to identify the salient issues and controversies and make them accessible and understandable. The concern is to distinguish differences within the economics profession, and between economists and non-economists, so that the reader can make informed judgments about the sources of these differences, and about their impact on policy analysis and policy advice. The book features explanatory text boxes, tables and diagrams, suggestions for further reading, and a listing of the economic concepts used in the chapters.
Routledge, xx, p. It analyses and predicts the mechanisms that can come into play to determine the function of institutions and the impact of public policy. This is a valuable book on an engaging theme that seeks to analyze the functioning of institutions to assess outcomes in terms of their impact on growth, efficiency and inequality. It demonstrates how economic theory can be used to improve our understanding of the real world and change it for the better.
This volume encompasses perfectly clearly written essays that reflect some of the driving themes in economics. It is a presentation for a wide set of readers.
Economic elites, crises, and democracy: alternatives beyond neoliberal capitalism Solimano, Andres. Oxford University Press, vi, p. This book presents updated data on rich economic elites and the middle class, demystifies the meaning of individual entrepreneurship in corporate capitalism, uncovers rich stories of past and present financial crises, and warns of the growing internationalization of the very rich and of social movements and argues, forcefully, in favor of adopting a new approach of economic democracy to solve the world' acute social problems.
Cities and public policy: an urban agenda for India Mohanty, Prasanna K. Sage, xvii, p. India, it is believed, will be at the forefront of such a phenomenon. This book acknowledges the role of agglomeration externalities as the cornerstone of urban public policy in India. Arguing that hypotheses of over-urbanization and urban bias theory-which articulated a negative view of urbanization-are based on fragile theoretical as well as empirical foundations, this book calls for proactive public policy to harness planned urbanization as resource. India requires agglomeration-augmenting, congestion-mitigating, and resource-generating cities as engines of economic growth, including rural development.
The book provides a large number of practical examples from India and abroad to enable policy-makers undertake reforms in urban and regional planning, financing, and governance to meet the challenges of urbanization in India. It combines theory and practice to draw lessons for an urban agenda for India and recognizes the central role of cities in catalysing growth and generating public finance for economic development.
Springer, xiv, p. It also examines its impact at the economic, political and societal levels with respect to governance, democratic structures, education and health. India has competitive edge of historical goodwill and it is one of the most important countries engaging Africa in the 21st Century. For Africa, India has emerged from an aid recipient country to a major aid provider but on a basis of partnership model.
The book provides a contemporary analysis and assessment of Indo-Africa relations, bringing together contributions from the Global South and from the North that explore whether the relationship is truly 'mutually beneficial'. Equilibrium models in an applied framework: Industrial structure and transformation Noren, Ronny. Springer-Verlag, xvi, p. It contains an accessible analytical survey of economic equilibrium models, including multi-sector programming models linear and quadratic and the computable general equilibrium CGE model.
The book introduces the importance of disinvestment, and hence, a model of economic transformation is developed. Finally, the globalisation process of the production system is examined. The equilibrium models in this book are presented in an easy way. Although the book is primarily written for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates, the reading of the book will appeal to anyone interested in economic theory and applied modelling in the field of economics.

Digital dividends-that is, the broader development benefits from using these technologies-have lagged behind. In many instances, digital technologies have boosted growth, expanded opportunities, and improved service delivery. Yet their aggregate impact has fallen short and is unevenly distributed.
