Promoting economic cooperation in South Asia : beyond SAFTA by Ejaz Ghani( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Promoting Economic Cooperation in South Asia: Beyond SAFTA examines the distinct development dichotomy that exists in South Asia and tries to find a workable solution to bridge this gap. In spite of rapid economic growth since 1980, there is extensive poverty and inequality in South Asia. This dichotomy has two faces: one is highly urbanized and well-linked to global markets, and the other is rural, isolated from the global economy, and growing very slowly. The large bulk of South Asia's poor live in the latter environment. The book brings together perspectives from academics, the private sect
Job creation and poverty reduction in India : towards rapid and sustained growth by Sadiq Ahmed( )

Rapid growth since 1980 has transformed India the 50th ranked economy in nominal US dollars to the 12th largest in the world in 2003. When income is measured with regard to purchasing power parity, the Indian economy occupies fourth place, after the United States, Japan, and China. Along with growing incomes, Indias increasingly outward orientation and the growing optimism about its economy has led to a surge in international investors interest. At the same time evidence suggests that income inequality is rising and the gap in average per capita income between the rich and poor states

Public finance in Egypt : its structure and trends by Sadiq Ahmed( Book )

12 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Egypt's public finances are unusual in several respects compared to those of other countries at similar income levels. The high proportions of public expenditures, revenues, and public sector deficit to GDP heighten the normal fiscal issues of the efficiency, equity, and development impact of public sector economic operations. This study focuses on a number of key issues in this area. After a brief description of the composition of the government's official budget document, the study discusses recent budgetary trends, the structure of taxes with special emphasis on tax performance, the composition and trend of public expenditure, the implications of the government budget for income distribution and resource allocation, the financial contribution of public sector enterprises, and the financing of the budget deficit. The paper makes specific recommendations relating to each key aspect discussed, i.e. tax effort, public expenditure, the fiscal role of public enterprises, and deficit financing

Making regional cooperation work for South Asia's poor by Sadiq Ahmed( )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"South Asia has attracted global attention because it has experienced rapid GDP growth over the last two decades. What is not so well known is that South Asia is the least integrated region in the world. South Asia has opened its door to the rest of the world but it remains closed to its neighbors. Poor market integration, weak connectivity, and a history of friction and conflict have resulted in two South Asias. The first South Asia is dynamic, growing rapidly, highly urbanized, and is benefiting from global integration. The second South Asia is rural, land locked, full of poverty, and lagging. The divergence between the two South Asias is on the rise. Policy makers in South Asia have realized that countries and regions can not grow in isolation. The unique geography of South Asia-distance and density--has the potential to raise growth through increased flow of labor, capital, ideas, technology, goods and services within the region and with the rest of the world. Most lagging regions, in terms of both per capita income and poverty incidence, in South Asia are either land-locked or located in the border areas. Regional cooperation and market integration will unlock the development of these lagging regions in South Asia."--World Bank web site
Global food price inflation : implications for South Asia, policy reactions, and future challenges by Sadiq Ahmed( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The surge in global commodity prices of the past few years has presented a tremendous development challenge for South Asian countries. The large loss of income from the terms of trade shock has worsened macroeconomic balances, fueled rapid inflation, and hurt growth. Although commodity prices have come down recently, the benefits are being clouded by the emergence of a severe global financial crisis. The adverse consequences of the food price hike for the poor are large; the global financial crisis could further worsen the situation due to falling economic opportunities and government revenues. South Asian countries need to accelerate reforms to avoid facing a serious downturn in economic activity, investment, exports, and income. Governments in South Asia have responded by stabilizing domestic food prices through a number of short-term measures, tightened monetary policy to reduce inflation, and increased spending on a range of safety net programs for the poor. Some of the policies employed, such as export bans, are not consistent with the long-term welfare of the country or the region. Safety net interventions need to be made consistent with a longer-term poverty reduction strategy and fiscal sustainability. Most importantly, policy attention now needs to shift toward efforts to increase farm productivity, improve rural infrastructure, and lower the vulnerability of the poor."--World Bank web site
