Annual World Bank Conference on Development in Latin America and the Caribbean, 1997 trade, towards open regionalism : proceedings of a conference held in Montevideo, Uruguay by Shahid Javed Burki ( )
13 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This third Annual Bank Conference on Development in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) focuses on trade liberalization policy, specifically "open regionalism," a term coined to describe the fact that 1) regionalism has gone hand in hand with unilateral trade opening:statistics on tariff and non-tariff measures affecting imports show that protectionist policies have been dismantled in the major LAC countries during the last decade; 2) regionalism has gone hand in hand with a substantial liberalization of investment regimes:provisions, including national treatment provisions, in regional trading arrangements show that several LAC countries treat foreign direct investment on exactly the same footing as domestic investment; and 3) most LAC countries are willing to participate in building a hemispheric free-trade zone and have been active, pro-liberalization members of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Speeches emphasized the political returns from trade integration:reciprocal lock-in, alliances created among pro-reform factions, pro-integration movements across countries, civil society integration, more-likely peaceful settlements to disputes, and general advancement of harmony in the Western Hemisphere through atmospherics, through positive incentive structures, and through cross-country coalitions. Because these positive linkages are largely implicit and not unduly burdensome, they make regional integration consistent with convergence toward global trade integration

South Asia in the new world order the role of regional cooperation by Shahid Javed Burki ( )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rapid changes have taken place in the structure of the global economy, and this book looks at how South Asia can take advantage of these changes. The author argues that the developing global economy will be more complex than originally thought, that instead of a bipolar model with two countries, the US and China, at the centre, it will be multipolar with eight centres of economic activity, including India. The book goes on to suggest that in the context of such a model, there should be regional cooperation between India and its immediate neighbouring countries for South Asia to advance as an economic region. It argues that South Asia will need to look at its history, and that changes in attitudes, particularly in India and Pakistan, are necessary. The possible benefits to the region, in terms of increases in the rates of economic growth if the regional approach is adopted, are discussed. The book presents a useful contribution to studies in South Asia, as well as Asian Economics. --

"Although Pakistan achieved independence in 1947, it still has not succeeded in integrating its diverse peoples into a nation - as its short yet turbulent history vividly demonstrates. The nation's search for stability is traced in this revised and updated introduction to Pakistan's political, economic, and social development. New chapters detail political developments since 1991, including the elections of 1993 and 1996. Particular attention is paid to economic changes, including the financial crisis that led to the fall of Benazir Bhutto's government in 1996. Also included is an extensive analysis of the nuclear arms race between India and Pakistan, an issue of global concern."--BOOK JACKET

Transforming socialist economies : lessons for Cuba and beyond by Daniel P Erikson ( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Transforming Socialist Economies: Lessons for Cuba and beyond seeks to explore how diverse governments have tackled change in China, Vietnam, Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia, and draw lessons for Cuba's future. The result is a provocative study that combines political and economic analysis to illustrate the detours, obstacles, and alternatives facing countries on the road from communism to capitalism." "By exploring how socialist economies have tackled change, this book proposes reforms to help Cuba recover lost ground and achieve sustained growth. But the relevance of these essays also extends far beyond Cuba to encompass important lessons for a broad spectrum of communist and post-communist countries."--BOOK JACKET
