Peasants and religion : a socioeconomic study of Dios Olivorio and the Palma Sola movement in the Dominican Republic by Jan Lundius( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the relationship between economics, politics and religion through the case of Olivorio Mateo and the religious movement he inspired from 1908 in the Dominican Republic. The authors explore how and why the new religion was formed, and why it was so successful. Comparing this case with other peasant movements, they show ways in which folk religion serves as a response to particular problems which arise in peasant societies during times of stress
The political economy of reform failure by Mats Lundahl( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economists have moved in recent years beyond analyzing the manner in which the macroeconomies of different countries function and prescribing appropriate policies for dealing with domestic and external imbalances. Increasingly, they have sought to understand the complex interaction between political and economic phenomena. This book considers issues of economic reform in a broad range of settings: * developed countries* transition countries* developing countriesUsing country specific cases such as Uzbekistan, Burma and Haiti, it

Knut Wicksell on poverty : "no place is too exalted for preaching of these doctrines" by Mats Lundahl( )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Knut Wicksell is arguably the greatest Swedish social scientist of all time and poverty was a theme that occupied him all his life. Indeed, it was probably this interest that was the main factor in drawing Wicksell away from his studies of mathematics and into economics instead." "Mats Lundahl, a development economist and a specialist on poverty himself, examines Wicksell's thinking in the area and shows that his contribution is a major one."--Jacket

The distorted economy by H. C Blomqvist( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An economy does not always work according to idealized textbook models. Economic systems are frequently subject to wide-ranging distortions and require remedies via subsidy and taxes to restore their social optimum. In The Distorted Economy, Hans C. Blomqvist and Mats Lundahl describe how to tackle the various distortions in goods and factor markets and apply their analytic framework to several case studies, including trade policy of developing countries, apartheid in South Africa and socialist planned economies. The authors offer an important and timely analysis of the causes, effects and resolutions of distortions in the economy."--Jacket
Economic crisis in Africa : perspectives on policy responses by Magnus Blomström( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All too often we are confronted with pitiful images of the victims of famine and drought which emanate from sub-Saharan Africa. While these images are normally drawn from the very poorest countries, the entire region faces an intense economic crisis. Why is this area in a state of near-permanent crisis and perhaps, more importantly, what can be done about it? Economic Crisis in Africa presents an overview of the situation and examines the feasibility of current policies as well as presenting long term objectives. The book is divided into four parts: Part I presents an overall view of the African crisis and crisis management. The authors focus on present economic and social conditions in the region.; These are illustrated with cross-country studies, focusing particularly on Tanzania and Kenya. Part II examines problems of the external sector particularly, trade liberalization.; Here, the relative success of Zimbabwe and Botswana is contrasted with the failure of Lesotho to implement an adjustment policy and the prevalence of "Dutch Disease" in Zambia. Part III presents a micro perspective on the African crisis and adjustment.; This is illustrated by case studies from Uganda, Guinea-Boisseau and the dismal failure of central state control over the Congolese economy. Finally, Part IV outlines the changes in economic systems which have taken place during the 1980s and the likely success of new policies. These analyses are presented in the context of Angola, Tanzania, the specific urgency for reform in Ethiopia and the magnitude of the task facing South Africa. However, the conclusion of Economic Crisis in Africa is that while most of the countries dealt with have embarked on far-reaching structural adjustment programmes it is still too early to say whether they will succeed or not - but historical experiences do not allow us to be too optimistic

It is a major problem for less developed countries to make their primary sectors sufficiently profitable in order to be able to build up their manufacturing and service sectors. This edited collection, first published in 1985, examines the nature of the primary sector and its role in economic development. Chapters consider problems of stagnation and income distribution in such countries as Chile and Brazil; trade in national primary products and exports in Africa and the Middle East; and reform and policies of development in countries such as Peru.

From crisis to growth in Africa? by Mats Lundahl( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with the problem of achieving sustained economic growth in thirteen African countries. These are divided into three groups: the war stricken economics (Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Ethiopia and Eritrea), the reform strugglers (Kenya, Cape Verde, Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique and Zimbabwe) and the growth seekers (Uganda, South Africa and Lesotho). Virtually all of these countries have gone through a structural adjustment program designed to remove imperfections that make it difficult for the market system to work in an optimal fashion. This title reviews these experiences

The political economy of disaster and underdevelopment : destitution, plunder and earthquake in Haiti by Mats Lundahl( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haiti, one of the least developed and most vulnerable nations in the Western Hemisphere, made the international headlines in January 2010 when an earthquake destroyed the capital, Port-au-Prince. More than a year later, little reconstruction has taken place, in spite of a strong international funding commitment. Mats Lundahl has written several seminal works on Haiti, and this volume brings together the best of his past work on Haiti's economic and political history, along with a comprehensive introduction and two new chapters which bring the story right up to the present day. Together, the volume provides both historical background and explanation as to why Haiti was so badly affected by the earthquake, and to why reconstruction efforts have been ineffective this far. Lundahl argues that the two main causes can found in the interaction between the growth of the population and the destruction of the arable soil on the one hand, and in the creation of a predatory state during the nineteenth century, which still exists to this day. This book provides a comprehensive analysis, which charts these themes from the time of the arrival of Columbus in the island in 1492, to the present day. The book also deals with contemporary market and policy failures, as well as the crucial recent elections, and considers the path ahead for this impoverished nation. This book will be of huge relevance and interest not only to students and researchers in economic history, but also for all those working on development economics, development studies and American and Caribbean Studies more generally
