Caught in a trap : identifying the least developed countries by Patrick Guillaumont ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The United Nations recognizes 49 least developed countries (LDCs): low-income countries that suffer most from structural handicaps to growth and so deserve special treatment from the international community. Here Patrick Guillaumont--who for the past ten years chaired the expert group for identifying LDCs at the UN Committee for Development Policy--strengthens the case for special treatment by examining the category's rationale, its history and its grounds in growth economics."--Page 4 of cover

When instability increases the effectiveness of aid projects by Patrick Guillaumont ( )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors assess the effect of economic instability on the success of projects funded by the World Bank using the outcome of the projects, which is a notation of their overall success determined by the Bank's Independent Evaluation Group. It has been argued in macroeconomic studies that aid effectiveness is higher in vulnerable countries because it dampens the negative effects of shocks. The authors show that this finding is not inconsistent with the observation that the success of the projects is lower in an unstable environment. Instability, in particular the instability of exports, harms aid projects as it harms the rest of the economy, while the success of projects decreases when the total amount of aid received increases, due to absorptive capacity limitations. But this decrease is slower when instability is higher, showing a positive effect of aid through its stabilizing impact. The authors find the same results keeping only the projects funded by nonconcessionary loans, which suggests that the cushioning effect of aid extends not only to aid funded projects but to whole sets of projects. Corroborating macroeconomic findings, their results lead to the same conclusion that more aid should be allocated to more vulnerable countries, in spite of the lower success of the projects in an unstable environment: project evaluations cannot include the macrostabilizing effect of the aid delivered through projects

Economic policy reform and growth prospects in emerging African economies by Patrick Guillaumont ( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We assess the prospects for growth of African economies up to the year 2010 by modelling structural and policy determinants of growth, under different scenarios for changes in the exogenous factors and economic policies which shape the projections. To this end we estimate a growth model for 39 African economies, during seven five-year periods from 1960 through 1995. The model emphasises two engines of growth: i) investment and ii) growth of exports. Using a composite indicator of "emerging economies" iiset up on the basis of the economic performance, quality of policies and political stability of African countries ppwe identify 14 African economies that stand better chances to achieve a lasting improvement in their policies and growth performance in the years ahead. These "emerging economies" can be mostly found in the Southern-Eastern and the Western parts of Africa. Our growth simulations involve two policy scenarios: a baseline scenario which extends policy trends observed
