Finance for development : Latin America in comparative perspective by Barbara Stallings( )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Access to finance is a critical element in any effort to promote development in emerging market economies. In this analysis of the Latin American financial sector, Barbara Stallings and Rogerio Studart examine recent transformations in the region, compare them to related developments elsewhere, and consider where they might lead. They challenge the new literature on finance and development, which argues for the elimination of public-sector banks, substitution of private monitoring for government regulation and supervision, and more complete integration with international capital markets. Rather, the authors advocate a more balanced approach that emphasizes individual country situation and strengthens the institutional context in which financial systems operate." "Case studies illustrate changes occurring in Chile, Mexico, and Brazil - the most sophisticated financial systems in Latin America. The authors place particular emphasis on the need to overcome two types of market failure: the lack of long-term finance for investment and access to credit for small firms. They conclude with policy recommendations for strengthening Latin American banks and capital markets so that they can play a greater role in supporting economic development."--Jacket

Global change, regional response : the new international context of development by Barbara Stallings( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a new perspective in studying contemporary development. Part I explores how the ending of the cold war, shifting relations among capitalist powers, changing patterns of finance, globalization of trade and production, and new ideological currents have altered development in four major third-world regions. Part II suggests how development options were molded by the dominant international power in each region: the United States in Latin America, Japan in East and Southeast Asia, and Europe with the international financial institutions in Africa. Part III provides a conceptual framework for analyzing regional performance: variation in economic capacity, trade opportunities, and access to finance shaped the development chances of each region, producing rapid growth in Asia, stagnation in Latin America, and economic contraction in sub-Saharan Africa during the 1980s and early 1990s. It also speculates about future trends based on varying development models"--Publisher description

Japan, the United States, and Latin America : toward a trilateral relationship in the Western Hemisphere by Barbara Stallings( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan has long had a presence in Latin America - ever since small numbers of Japanese migrated at the beginning of the century to work as farm laborers. Growing economic and political power has made Japan more visible than ever in the region, its activities and influence competing directly with U.S. holdings and interests. Providing a brief historical overview and examining issues that will shape future economic arrangements in the region, Japan, the United States, and Latin America is the most detailed analysis to date of growing Japanese economic influence outside Asia. In their introduction, the editors explore various possibilities for the future of the region: the United States maintaining its dominant position, Japan displacing the United States, and the two countries sharing economic power and political influence. Concluding that none of these possibilities is adequate, they propose instead a "trilateral model" in which the Latin American countries begin to play a central role in shaping the region's economic development, working as equal partners with Japan and the United States for mutual benefit. The other contributors to the volume provide the differing perspectives of the countries under consideration. Drawing on sources unfamiliar to most Western scholars, three Japanese authors discuss Japan's perspective on Latin America's role in the global political economy, the evolution of Japanese cultural ties and economic interests in the area, and the growth of Latin American studies in Japan. Five Latin American scholars then examine the impact of Japanese economic activities in Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Chile, and Panama. They also explore strategies these countries might use to gain maximum advantage from relations with both the United States and Japan

Competitive regionalism : FTA diffusion in the Pacific Rim by Mireya Solís( Book )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The rapid proliferation of free trade agreements (FTAs) is remarkable given the abundant scepticism about their economic benefits. Policy diffusion models offer the key to this puzzle since they highlight how these different sets of preferential trade agreements are interconnected (either because they generate externalities on non-members or because they disseminate novel policy paradigms), thereby underscoring the impact of peer pressure on FTA dissemination. The book also offers a sophisticated understanding of the drivers behind FTA proliferation, beyond traditional economic arguments, to encompass international political rivalry and the race to shape international trade rules. In so doing, it addresses the fundamental question as to how FTAs affect the regional integration process itself. FTAs can work for or against emergence of coherent regional blocs, and this book explores which conditions favor one outcome over the other."--Publisher's website
Promoting development : the political economy of East Asian foreign aid by Barbara Stallings( )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a new approach to studying foreign aid in the 21st century. While most analysts focus on the differences between traditional and emerging donors, Stallings and Kim here argue that a more important distinction is between East Asian donors and their western counterparts. Asian donors - Japan, South Korea, and China - cross the traditional and emerging divide and demonstrate a particular approach to development that draws on their own dramatic success. As East Asia continues its upward trajectory of economic development, the politics of aid can reveal surprising truths about the objectives and mechanisms of soft power and diplomacy in creating new networks in the region. This book will be of interest to NGO workers, scholars, and students of international relations, a critical part of research into Asia's rise and the emerging spheres of influence
Innovation and inclusion in Latin America : strategies to avoid the middle-income trap by Alejandro Foxley( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book argues that Latin America must confront two main challenges: greater innovation to increase productivity, and greater inclusion to incorporate more of the population into the benefits of economic growth. These two tasks are interrelated, and both require greater institutional capacity to facilitate both innovation and inclusion. Most countries in Latin America are struggling to escape what economists label “the middle income trap.” While much if not all of the region has emerged from low income status, neither growth nor productivity has increased sufficiently to enable Latin America to narrow the gap separating it from the world’s most developed economies. Although income inequality has diminished across much of the region in recent years, social vulnerability remains widespread and institutional weaknesses continue to plague efforts to achieve equitable development. This volume identifies lessons that can be learned and adapted from experiences within the region and in East Asia, where the middle income trap has largely been avoided. This book is the result of a collaborative project undertaken by American University’s Center for Latin American & Latino Studies (CLALS) and the Corporation for Latin American Studies (CIEPLAN) in Chile, with financial support from the Inter-American Development Bank’s Office of Strategic Planning and Development Effectiveness
