Leadership and growth( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book reviews Nigeria's growth performance and its impact on the labor market and proposes a growth strategy aimed at further accelerating growth and enhancing the growth elasticity of employment. The growth strategy rests on three pillars: Targeted interventions to address binding constraints in value chains with high growth and employment potential. These binding constraints include poor physical infrastructure and investment climate, lack of access to finance, pervasive skills gaps, and restrictive trade policies. Successful interventions in these value chains need to be designed based on an assessment of what is most relevant, feasible, cost-effective and provides the greatest near and medium-term benefits. To be effective, these interventions should emanate from a dialogue with the private sector and allow for swift correction and suitable governance arrangements. Comprehensive reform of the technical and vocational education system: This will be needed not only to create conditions for more rapid growth, but also to combat youth unemployment. Private sector-led approaches to improved vocational training, where the government plays the role of standardizing curricula and accrediting programs, are the most promising route for reform. Trade policy reform. Import bans and high tariff barriers substantially increase the cost of doing business in value chains with high employment potential. Further trade liberalization will be essential to allow a restructuring of the economy towards sectors where Nigeria is globally competitive

Equity and growth in a globalizing world by Michael Spence( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a compilation of a series of "state of the art" papers on topics related to equity and growth. As inputs to its final report (The Growth Report), the Commission on Growth and Development took stock of the current state of knowledge and understanding of various sectors/issues that have an impact on economic growth, including equity, education, health, leadership and others. The following questions are discussed in the book: - What has been the evolution of poverty and equity during the recent globalizing decades? - How have poor countries fared on the Millennium Development Goals? - What role does wealth inequality play in the level and efficiency of investment and hence in economic growth? - Is gender equity a smart pro-growth strategy as well as a pro-poor one? - How is equality different from equality of opportunity, and should policy makers pursue, one or the other, or both? - In formulating distributional strategies, should the middle class be integrally considered, or should the focus be entirely on the poorest of the poor? - What are the precise impacts of globalization on poverty and equity, and what are the policy implications of these impacts? - Is the problem with globalization that a key element if missing-the globalization of labor employment? - What is the role of international migration in the evolution of equity within and between nations?
Health and growth( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book containes a series of state of the art essays on topics related to health and growth. The Commission on Growth and Development (CGD)--in preparing its own Growth Report--wished to take stock of the current state of knowledge and understanding of economic growth, and thus commissioned a series of essays on a range of thematic areas. One such area is health. The following questions are discussed in the book: Does investing in health raise economic growth? Can governments achieve rapid growth or high incomes without investing in health? What are the options and benefits of different analytic approaches to measuring the causal link between health and growth? Have medical advances influenced life expectancy levels? Do health investments lead to higher individual productivity? Why are investment in early childhood development and nutrition important? How do governments invest in improving health status? Why do all governments invest in health care services? Where should governments invest in health to improve the welfare and health status of the population? What are the pitfalls in public health care provision and finance? How can public investments raise health status and household productivity?

Prominent economists reconsider the fundamentals of economic policy for a post-crisis world
In the wake of the crisis : leading economists reassess economic policy by Joseph E Stiglitz( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2011, the International Monetary Fund invited prominent economists and economic policy makers to consider the brave new world of the post-crisis global economy. The result is a book that captures the state of macroeconomic thinking at a transformational moment. The crisis and the weak recovery that has followed raise fundamental questions concerning macroeconomics and economic policy. For instance, to what extent are financial markets efficient and self-correcting? How crucial is low and stable inflation for growth and the real stability of the economy? How strong is the case for open capital markets? Too often, the standard models provided insufficient guidance on how to respond to the unprecedented situations created by the crisis. As a result, policy makers have been forced to improvise. What to do when interest rates reach the zero floor? How best to provide liquidity to segmented financial institutions and markets? How much to use fiscal policy starting from high levels of debt? These top economists discuss future directions for monetary policy, fiscal policy, financial regulation, capital account management, growth strategies, and the international monetary system, and the economic models that should underpin thinking about critical policy choices. Among the new realities they consider are the swing of the pendulum toward regulation; the need for new theoretical approaches, incorporating advances in agency theory, behavioral economics, and understanding of credit markets and finance based on theories of imperfect information; and the importance for macroeconomic policy to target not just inflation but also output and financial stability.
