International aid; a discussion of the flow of public resources from rich to poor countries by I. M. D Little( Book )

41 editions published between 1965 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a comprehensive analysis of the economics of international aid that provides a systematic framework for understanding, planning, and executing aid programs. Though much has been written on different aspects of international aid, this book was the first to synthesize information on all facets of aid and to investigate the consequences, for both donor and recipient nations, of the transfer of public resources in aid programs. The authors first present the history of aid, discuss the principles that govern aid as practiced by the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, the United Nations, and other donors, and then provide a broad theoretical structure in which to discuss particular questions taken up in subsequent chapters. The book systematically covers all aspects of the aid relationship, and in addition to broad coverage of aid programs, analyzes details of the aid relationship to discern the function of the different variables of aid. In one coherent volume, International Aid outlines sound theoretical bases for discussion of aid programs, provides valuable insights into contemporary practices, and offers far-reaching suggestions on the future of aid programs. On first publication in the mid-1960s, in the midst of the Cold War, this book had considerable influence and its interest outlasts its parochial times as one of the first to discuss the effects of aid on both donor and recipient countries."--Provided by publisher

India : macroeconomics and political economy, 1964-1991 by Vijay Joshi( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an analytic macroeconomic history of India from 1964 to 1991, set in the context of India's political economy. It pays particular attention to the specific policies which have been pursued, assesses their successes and failures from the point of view of stabilization and growth, and considers the lessons that can be drawn."--BOOK JACKET. "A brief introduction to the Indian economy is followed by a detailed analysis of the major macroeconomic crises of the period, and the government's response to them. Later chapters of the book are concerned with trends in the major areas of policy - fiscal policy, monetary policy, and trade and payments policy - and their long-run effects."--BOOK JACKET. "It was once a fashionable view that India's interventionist economic policies were unsound microeconomically but sound macroeconomically. In contrast, a principal conclusion of this study is that India's control system was not only microeconomically inefficient but macroeconomically perverse."--BOOK JACKET

22 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reviews the macroeconomic experiences of eithteen developing countries and looks at the interplay between potitics and economics and the motivations for economic policies. The review primarily covers the turbulent years from 1974 to 1989 but sometimes looks back to 1965 and forward to 1992. The different policy reactions to external shocks are described.

Other large countries included in the study are India, Korea, Morroco, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Thailand. The authors examine why some countries have managed to maintain low inflation, and they compare exchange rate regimes. An entire chapter looks at the interplay between politics and economics, and the final chapter makes specific policy recommendations
India's economic reforms, 1991-2001 by Vijay Joshi( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

India is the world's largest democracy, and second-largest developing country. For forty years it has also been one of the most dirigiste and autarkic. The 1980s saw most developing and erstwhile communist countries opt for market economic systems. India belatedly initiated similar reforms in 1991. This book evaluates the progress of those reforms, covering all of the major areas of policy; stabilization, taxation and trade, domestic and external finance, agriculture, industry, the social sectors, and poverty alleviation. Will India realize its great potential by freeing itself from the self-imposed constraints that have hindered its development? This is the important and fascinating question considered by this book

Small manufacturing enterprises : a comparative study of India and other economies by I. M. D Little( Book )

21 editions published between 1000 and 1989 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until the 1970s no developing country - except India - showed much concern for promoting industrialization through small manufacturing enterprises. By examining Indian small-enterprise development and policy in detail in an international context, this book draws lessons for industrial policy in developing economies. To provide comparators, the authors assess experiences with the development of small enterprises in several other economies, including Colombia, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The core of the book is an investigation of the claim that the promotion of small enterprises has a special role in industrial policy, for example in facilitating the efficient use of labor and other factors of production. In addition to analyzing aggregate data from national sources, the authors make use of detailed surveys of the Indian shoe, soap, printing, machine tool, and metal-casting industries. They analyze such issues as the relative factor intensity, productivity, and economic efficiency of small enterprises
