The state and peasant politics in Sri Lanka by Mick Moore( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr Moore's enterprising book focuses on an apparent paradox: the failure of Sri Lanka's highly politicized smallholder electorate to place on the national political agenda issues relating to the public distribution of material resources. Sri Lanka has more than fifty years' history of pluralist democracy and such issues directly affect the interests of the smallholder population. Yet successive Sri Lankan governments have pursued economic policies favouring food consumers and the state itself at the expense of agricultural producers. In exploring the features of Sri Lanka's history, geography, politics and economy which explain this paradox, the author looks in detail at some of the dominant features of contemporary Sri Lanka: the political consequences of the plantation experience; the persistence of elite political leadership; and the causes and consequences of ethnic conflict
Development and the rural-urban divide by John Harriss( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1984. It is widely acknowledged that rural-urban differences and interrelationships play an important role in the development process. Some theorists believe they are a primary cause of continuing poverty in poor nations. This volume of essays summarises and appraises theories of rural-urban relations and economic development and explores, mainly on the basis of country case studies, the conceptual and theoretical problems to which they give rise, and the extent to which they correspond to recent experiences in the Third World.

Taxation and state-building in developing countries : capacity and consent by Deborah Brautigam( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a widespread concern that, in some parts of the world, governments are unable to exercise effective authority. When governments fail, more sinister forces thrive: warlords, arms smugglers, narcotics enterprises, kidnap gangs, terrorist networks, armed militias. Why do governments fail? This book explores an old idea that has returned to prominence: that authority, effectiveness, accountability and responsiveness is closely related to the ways in which governments are financed. It matters that governments tax their citizens rather than live from oil revenues and foreign aid, and it matters how they tax them. Taxation stimulates demands for representation, and an effective revenue authority is the central pillar of state capacity. Using case studies from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America, this book presents and evaluates these arguments, updates theories derived from European history in the light of conditions in contemporary poorer countries, and draws conclusions for policy-makers

What makes microcredit programmes effective? : fashionable fallacies and workable realities by Pankaj Jain( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is an influential, orthodox explanation of the success of large scale micro-credit programmes, based particularly on interpretations of the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh. There are three core elements: the alleged importance of strong social bonds among small borrower groups; the notion of substantial borrower participation in management; and the belief in the centrality of charging unsubsidised rates of interest. While it resonates strongly with fashionable development ideologies, this orthodox explanation does not correspond to the facts. The real explanation lies in careful attention to managerial and strategic 'fundamentals': keeping transactions costs low; matching loan repayment schedules to borrowers' income and savings potentials; finding ways of obtaining good work performance from large and widely dispersed field staff; addressing basic client needs in an efficient way; and, above all, attacking on many fronts the perennial micro-credit problem of borrower default. Creating and sustaining a strong and distinct organisational culture has been an important means of achieving these goals. The main practical conclusion is that there is more than one route to achieving the core objectives that make micro-credit systems viable

Taxation, governance and poverty : where do the middle income countries fit? by Mick Moore( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tax reform can contribute to improved governance and poverty reduction both directly and indirectly: by redistributing income, and by helping establish stronger fiscal social contracts in poorer countries. Middle Income Countries can play an especially important role in this process. First, they are especially likely to suffer very high levels of income and wealth inequality and very unjust tax systems. Second, recent experience shows that Middle Income Countries have a greater capacity than Low Income Countries to design tax reforms that are appropriate to local circumstances and likely to command local political support. Because of a series of recent and current changes in the fiscal environment and in tax policies, tax-payers in many Middle Income Countries are likely to become politically more engaged in the near future. Issues of taxation and public spending will become more prominent in public policy debates and election campaigns. This represents an opportunity to promote constructive tax reform - directly in Middle Income Countries, and indirectly in the many Low Income Countries over which some Middle Income Countries are beginning to exert increasing development policy influence. Aid donors and international financial institutions have made substantial useful contributions to tax policy reform in the South in recent decades. They could continue to have a positive influence, especially if they remain engaged with Middle Income Countries and become more willing to allow and encourage the opening up of tax and fiscal policy issues to broad democratic debate
Country classifications for a changing world by Dan Harris( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The distinction between developing and developed countries has long been central to development studies and to debates on development policy. In earlier decades, it was in many respects accurate, and was for many purposes useful. Although the world is still very much divided between rich and poor countries, relationships among countries have changed so much that the developing-developed country distinction has become an obstacle to understanding current problems and opportunities and, even more, to thinking productively about the future. It is time to stop using it. Many alternative ways of categorising countries have been suggested. In recent years in particular, large numbers of organisations have begun annually to rank countries according to a wide variety of criteria: from economic vulnerability, bribe payers, competitiveness, digital access, ease of doing business, food insecurity, governance, and happiness to water poverty and welfare. These do not adequately capture the structural and relational changes that have occurred in our multi-polar world with substantially altered flows of ideas, resources and influence. Focusing on the needs of European policymakers, this paper suggests two axes for classifying countries. The first is the external capacity of states to influence and work with other states. This is captured in the (measureable) concept of anchor countries developed by the German Development Institute and beginning to be put into practice in the enlargement from the G8 to the G20. The second is internal state capacity, as shaped by the sources of government income, in particular contrasting tax, aid, and oil. Using sources of public revenue as a way of classifying countries requires more work but would help to steer the development debate toward the key issue of improving the quality of governance and thus strengthening the capacity of poor countries to help themselves
