Globalization is a powerful force for poverty reduction as societies and economies around the world are becoming more integrated. Although this international integration presents tremendous opportunities for developing countries, it also has raised concerns about rising inequality, shifting power, and cultural uniformity.

"East Asia: Recovery and Beyond analyzes the dynamics of recovery and asks three questions: Is the recovery built on a solid foundation? Can the recovery be converted into a new era of high growth to rival the miracle years? Has the crisis permanently changed the region's development strategy and its institutional underpinnings?" "Aimed at an audience including the international community, policymakers in the region, the business community, and academics, this study provides a synthesis of recent work, incorporating selected pieces of analytical work and a progress report on the key elements of concern to the Bank. It offers suggestions for actionable policies for regional and local actors and, by opening up questions that cannot be answered, establishes a research agenda for the future."--Jacket
Adjustment in Africa reforms, results, and the road ahead by World Bank ( )
18 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To reverse the economic decline that began in the 1970s, many sub-Saharan African countries have undertaken efforts to restructure their economies. This has included liberalizing trade, deregulating markets and prices, privatizing public enterprises, and strengthening management of the financial and public sectors. Implementation has been uneven in different countries, and even those countries that have attempted major reforms have not achieved poicies that are considered sound by international standards. A key finding of this book is is that improving policies paid off in higher GDR and sectoral growth rates, which are vital to reducing poverty; but in countries where policies deteriorated, economic performance worsened.; Despite the importance of reforming economic policies, it is not enough, and countries need to invest more in human capital and infrastructure, expand their institutional capacity and develop better governance. This is the second title in the World Bank Policy Research Reports (the first was the East Asian Miracle 1993)
