The political economy of poverty, equity, and growth : a comparative study by Deepak Lal( Book )

37 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wide-ranging and innovative book synthesises the findings of a major international study of the political economy of poverty, equity, and growth. It is based primarily on analytical economic histories of twenty-one developing countries from 1950 to 1985, but also takes account of the much wider literature on the subject. It represents an ambitious interdisciplinary attempt to identify patterns in the interplay of initial conditions, institutions, interests, and ideas which can help to explain the different growth and poverty alleviation outcomes in the Third World." "Three different types of poverty are distinguished, based on their causes, and a more nebulous notion of equity - in contrast to egalitarianism - is shown to have influenced policy. Since growth is found to be the major means of alleviating mass structural poverty, much of the book is concerned with probing for explanations for policies which are found to be the most important influence on the proximate causes of growth. The authors also consider the available evidence on the role of direct transfers - public and private - in alleviating destitution and conjunctural poverty." "The evidence marshalled is used to argue for the continuing relevance of the classical liberal viewpoint on public policies for development, and to show why, even so, nationalist ideologies are likely to be adopted and to lead to cycles of dirigisme and liberalism. The evidence is also used to provide an explanation for the surprising current world-wide Age of Reform."--Jacket
Unintended consequences : the impact of factor endowments, culture, and politics on long run economic performance by Deepak Lal( Book )

26 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, based on the 1995 Ohlin Lectures, Deepak Lal provides an accessible, interdisciplinary account of the role of culture in shaping economic performance. Lal's first major theme is the interaction of factor endowments, culture, and politics in explaining modern intensive growth in the West. The other major theme is the role of individualism - an inadvertent legacy of the medieval Catholic Church - in promoting this growth, and the strange metamorphoses this has caused in both the West's cosmological beliefs and the interaction between "the West and the rest."
In praise of empires : globalization and order by Deepak Lal( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this timely and controversial book, renowned economist Deepak Lal explores the twin themes of empires and globalization and discusses the place of the United States in the current world order. Globalization is not a new phenomenon, but one that has always been associated in the past with empires. Far from being a negative force, globalization provides the promise of global prosperity, while empires provide the peace and stability of a world order to protect the trade and commerce that are essential for global economic development." "In Praise of Empires argues that not since the fall of the Roman Empire has there been a potential imperial power like the United States today. It asks the questions: Is a U.S. imperium needed for the globalization which breeds prosperity? And, although the United States has the military ability to run an empire, would U.S. domestic politics support this?"--Jacket

This is a volume of essays in honour of Ian Little, who was Professor of Economics at Oxford until 1975, and whose seminal work in the discipline - notably in the areas of public policy and economic development - spans over 30 years and is still continuing. The authors, all well known economists, provide pointers to help and influence policymakers in areas crucial to the economies of developing countries. Each chapter provides a succinct summing up of the literature, conveying the main ideas in the chosen area in a way that is accessible to the layperson as well as to the professional economist, keeping technical matter to a minimum. The volume as a whole covers issues of concern in both microeconomic and macroeconomic policy. These include: exchange rate policy, trade policy, problems of industrialization, foreign investment, taxation strategies, capital flows, and aspects of the interface between politics and economic policy. The collection begins with a personal memoir by Francis Seton and concludes with a bibliography of Little's published work

The author, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, argues that "efficient economic growth is the only means to alleviate the ancient structural poverty of the Third World, and that if countries grew rapidly, with per capita income growing above 3 percent a year, the much derided 'trickle down' would rapidly diminish structural poverty."--Introduction
The Hindu equilibrium : India c. 1500 B.C.-2000 A.D. by Deepak Lal( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"India is an emerging giant. This book explains its long economic stagnation and recent rise by examining its social, political, and historical evolution over three millennia. In particular, it explains how the country's distinct social system based on caste arose, and why it is still important in its political and social arrangements, despite India's recent move from the plan to market, which is at last shattering the age-old Hindu Equilibrium." "This revised and abridged edition of the previous two-volume work brings the story up to date, and makes this edition invaluable to academics, researchers, and policy-makers in public and private organizations."--Jacket
