Trade policy issues in Asian development by Prema-chandra Athukorala( )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two key concerns which guide the empirical analysis throughout are the interconnection between theory and practice and the choice of analytical procedures with a view to getting the maximum out of available data. The book places an emphasis upon methodology and data handling and offers a comprehensive subject coverage. This should be a useful reference for professional economists, policy-makers and researchers working on trade and development issues in developing countries

Developing countries in the world trading system : the Uruguay round and beyond( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book examines the achievements of the Uruguay Round of trade negotiations in reforming the world trading system and the challenges to future reforms. It begins with an overview of the genesis of the world trading system and moves on to examine the key issues as they relate to developing countries. These include further liberalization of agricultural trade; abolition of the Multifibre Arrangement; environmental and labour standards; competition policy; regional integration in South East Asia; and the implications for developing Asian countries of the liberalization of the Chinese economy and its WTO membership. Furthermore, the book discusses the links between trade liberalization and poverty reduction - drawing on the experience of Asian countries - and puts forward arguments on how trade liberalization could effect a greater reduction in poverty
Crisis and recovery in Malaysia : the role of capital control by Prema-chandra Athukorala( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is an analysis of the reasons for the economic crisis in Malaysia and the role of capital controls in its recovery. The author shows how Malaysia generated its own vulnerability to the contagion from the Thai collapse, but also makes use of desegregated data to demonstrate that the government's adoption of capital controls worked. Adjustment was achieved at lower social cost than without capital controls. As far as crisis management is concerned the orthodox critics were confounded. But Athukorala has his reservations that some of the rescue operations may have sustained inefficient and weakly financial institutions and may represent a hazard for long term prosperity
The rise of Asia : trade and investment in global perspective by Prema-chandra Athukorala( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines emerging trends and patterns of foreign trade and investment in Asia with a view to contributing to the policy debate on how development strategies should be adopted in response to challenges to economic globalization
Export instability and growth : problems and prospects for the developing economies by Prema-chandra Athukorala( Book )

Structural change and international migration in East Asia : adjusting to labour scarcity by Prema-chandra Athukorala( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Structural Change and International Migration in East Asia: Adjusting to Labour Scarcity provides the first systematic analysis of the rapid growth of international labour migration in East Asia.

Growth employment and migration in southeast Asia : structural change in the greater Mekong countries by Prema-chandra Athukorala( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book begins with a comparative overview of policy reforms, economic performance and structural changes, focusing on economic relations in the Greater Mekong countries. It then examines the salient features of labour market structures and policies, patterns of cross-border migration, and information systems, paying attention to the similarities and differences between countries. It is especially timely in the context of economic transition from socialist systems in the three Indochina countries, the ongoing policy reforms in Yunnan Province and Myanmar, and in light of the Asian financial crisis in shaping growth trends. The analysis yields policy recommendations for improvement in labour market performance." "The book will be of great interest to development and labour economists and those working in the field of Asian studies, as well as to policymakers."--BOOK JACKET
Liberalization and industrial transformation : Sri Lanka in international perspective by Prema-chandra Athukorala( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Describing reforms since 1977, Athukorala and Rajapatirana use detailed empirical analysis to show how Sri Lanka's rapid progress in industrialization and employment generation can be attributed to reforms. The Sri Lankan case is particularly interesting because it is a latecomer to the strategy of export-oriented growth. The lessons are of value to other countries. The authors argue that being a latecomer does not hamper progress as long as there is a complementary liberalization of both trade and investment policy." "The book will interest researchers and students of economics and development as well as policy-makers."--Jacket
Trade liberalisation and poverty in South Asia( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The link between trade liberalisation and poverty has arguably been one of the most debated topics in development policy debate. Existing studies on the subject have primarily used multi-country cross-sectional data, and there is a growing concern about the limitations of this approach in providing a sound empirical basis for informing the policy debate. These limitations point to the need for undertaking in-depth analyses within individual countries over time. In order to examine the connection between trade liberalisation and poverty, this book provides case studies of trade policy

Saving, investment, and growth in India by Prema-chandra Athukorala( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is one of the first books to provide a comprehensive analysis of the determinants of saving and investment in India. It examines the role of financial factors in economic development. The analysis provides a detailed account of the underlying growth process and related social, political, and institutional aspects." "Combining quantitative methods with qualitative analysis, this work examines: economic policies prevailing in India since independence; the changing perceptions on key economic issues; determinants, trends and patterns of investment and saving in India; and the role of policies in mediating the relationship between investment and growth rates." "The econometric evidence is presented and interpreted in the context of literature from other developing countries."--BOOK JACKET

Managing globalization in the Asian century : essays in honour of Prema-Chandra Athukorala by Hal Hill( )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global centre of gravity continues to shift to the Asia-Pacific, the most dynamic region in the world. These economies have generally grown faster for longer periods of time than any other major region in world history. Their embrace of globalization has been a central feature, and driver, of their dynamism. The management of Asia-Pacific economic integration and globalization is crucial not only for the countries themselves but also for the state of the global economy, including importantly latecomer developing economies who look to the region for analytical and development policy lessons. Twenty-seven leading international authorities in the field, drawn from nine countries, provide a comprehensive examination of the causes, consequences and challenges of globalization, in a volume that celebrates the distinguished career of Professor Prema-Chandra Athukorala. Among the major issues examined are the region's distinctive approach to trade liberalization, the effects of economic growth on poverty reduction and the labour market, the special challenges of by-passed regions, the role of ideas in influencing policy making, the modalities of connecting to global production networks, and the importance of remittances in economic development. Several country case studies provide in-depth analyses of development processes and outcomes. These include episodes in economic development, the challenges faced by transition economies, the macroeconomics of adjusting to slower growth and rising debt in advanced economies, and the so-called middle-income trap phenomenon
