Development cooperation in times of crisis by José Antonio Alonso( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leading governments undertook extraordinary measures to offset the 2008 economic crisis, shoring up financial institutions, stimulating demand to reverse recession, and rebalancing budgets to alleviate sovereign debt. While productive in and of themselves, these solutions were effective because they were coordinated internationally and were matched with sweeping global financial reforms. Unfortunately, coordination has weakened after these initial steps, indicating one of the crisis's adverse effects will be a significant reduction in development cooperation. Urging advanced nations to improve their support for development, the contributors to this volume revisit the causes of the 2008 collapse and the ongoing effects of recession on global and developing economies. They reevaluate the international response to crisis and suggest more effective approaches to development cooperation. Experts on international aid join together to redesign the cooperation system and its governance, so it can accept new actors and better achieve the Millennial Development Goals of 2015 within the context of severe global crisis. In their introduction, Jose Antonio Alonso and Jose Antonio Ocampo summarize different chapters and the implications of their analyses, concluding with a frank assessment of global economic imbalance and the ability of increased cooperation to rectify these inequalities
Globalization and development : a Latin American and Caribbean perspective by José Antonio Ocampo( )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international response to opportunities and risks arising from globalization has been incomplete and uneven. But a proactive approach by a network of institutions could correct existing asymmetries and build a rights-based international social agenda. Globalization and Development provides a historical overview of economic development in the Latin America and Caribbean region - and proposes an economic and noneconomic agenda that addresses disparity, respects diversity, and fosters complementarity among regional, national, and international institutions. "This book provides a profound analysis of key problems facing the global economic order. Equally important, the agenda put forward provides perceptive food for thought for all who are committed to overcoming the fundamental asymmetries that pervade the world economy today. It recognizes that success in creating a better global order must go beyond the topics that have been at the center of discussion in the past: There must be an adequate supply of global public goods, and we need to incorporate at the global level values that we often take for granted at the national level--a commitment to global democracy, global citizenship, and global social justice."
The economic development of Latin America since independence by Luis Bértola( )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Latin America is attracting increasing interest due to the strong economic performance of the last decade and to the political changes that are taking place. This book gives a unique, comprehensive, and up-to-date view of Latin American economic development over the two centuries since Independence. It considers Latin American economies within the wider context of the international economy, and covers economic growth, international trade, capital flows, and trends in inequality and human development. With chapters that examine different eras, it traces the major developments of Latin American countries and offers a novel and coherent interpretation of the economic history of the region. It combines a wealth of original research, new perspectives, and empirical information to provide a synthesis of the growing literature that both complements and extends previous studies."--Page 4 of cover
Too little, too late : the quest to resolve sovereign debt crises by Martin Guzman( )

18 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current approach to resolving sovereign debt crisis does not work: sovereign debt restructurings come too late and address too little. Though unresolved debt crises impose enormous costs on societies, many recent restructurings have not been deep enough to provide the conditions for economic recovery (as illustrated by the Greek debt restructuring of 2012). And if the debtor decides not to accept the terms demanded by the creditors, finalizing a restructuring can be slowed by legal challenges (as illustrated by the recent case of Argentina, deemed "the trial of the century"). A fresh start for distressed debtors is a basic principle of a well-functioning market economy, yet there is no international bankruptcy framework for sovereign debts. While this problem is not new, the United Nations and the global community are now willing to do something about it. Providing guidance for those who intend to take up reform, the book assesses the relative merits of various debt-restructuring proposals, especially in relation to the main deficiencies of the current nonsystem. With contributions by leading academics and practitioners, Too Little, Too Late reflects the overwhelming consensus among specialists on the need to find workable solutions. -- from dust jacket
Beyond reforms : structural dynamics and macroeconomic vulnerability by José Antonio Ocampo( )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond Reforms reviews long-term growth and development patterns and focuses on macroeconomic vulnerability and its social effects. The eight chapters offer theoretical and methodological contributions that share a common focus: how to improve the frustratingly poor economic performance in Latin America, as well as in other parts of the developing world, experienced during the recent phase of economic liberalization." "This collection presents a more precise view of the risks and challenges that characterize the new economic era and advances a set of alternative economic policies to manage the open developing-country economies of the early twenty-first century. Ideas that have been absent from the reform agenda over the past two decades are recognized as critical in fostering the improved economic and social performance that liberalization has so far failed to produce."--Jacket
Overcoming developing country debt crises by Barry Herman( )

23 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining historical sovereign debt crises in developing and transition economies, this text concludes that these occurrences have been economic and social catastrophes and are likely to happen again in the future due to the 'boom and bust' nature of economic cycles
Growth and policy in developing countries : a structuralist approach by José Antonio Ocampo( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic structuralists use a broad, systemwide approach to understanding development, and this textbook assumes a structuralist perspective in its investigation of why a host of developing countries have failed to grow at 2 percent or more since 1960. Sensitive to the wide range of factors that affect an economy's strength and stability, the authors identify the problems that have long frustrated growth in many parts of the developing world while suggesting new strategies and policies to help improve standards of living. After a survey of structuralist methods and post-World War II trends of global economic growth, the authors discuss the role that patterns in productivity, production structures, and capital accumulation play in the growth dynamics of developing countries. Next, it outlines the evolution of trade patterns and the effect of the terms of trade on economic performance, especially for countries that depend on commodity exports. The authors acknowledge the structural limits of macroeconomic policy, highlighting the negative effects of financial volatility and certain financial structures while recommending policies to better manage external shocks. These policies are then further developed through a discussion of growth and structural improvements, and are evaluated according to which policy options-macro, industrial, or commercial¿best fit within different kinds of developing economies

20 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text addresses the 2008 financial crisis originating in developed countries that will have a major impact on developing countries, as it spreads globally.

La crisis latinoamericana de la deuda desde la perspectiva histórica by José Antonio Ocampo( )

9 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En este libro se reunen cuatro ensayos que permiten entender los factores que originaron la crisis y las circunstancias que determinaron que sus consecuencias para la región fueran aún más graves que las de la Gran Depresión de los anos treinta. En el libro se explican también los procesos de negociación que condujeron a los países deudores a una situación desmejorada, los programas de reestructuración de la deuda y su incidencia en el desarrollo financiero de la región, y el modo en que los cambios en las políticas económicas experimentados por la región pueden contribuir a prevenir la ocurrencia de este tipo de crisis en el futuro. Treinta años después de la crisis que más gravemente afecto el desarrollo de la región, en un mundo cada vez más interdependiente y turbulento, las lecciones aprendidas de este episodio están plenamente vigentes
An economic history of twentieth-century Latin America( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the impact on Latin America of the extraordinary transformation of the international economy that took place in the half century or so that preceded the world depression of the 1930s. The authors show how the response varied in terms of both growth and distribution, shaped by varying preconditions, and by natural resources and geography. The interplay of economic developments with political and social structures had profound and varied effects on policy-making and on institutions that were of great significance for later decades
Uneven economic development( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Uneven Economic Development, leading economists and development experts examine the causes and implications of international economic divergences. This comprehensive and timely book reviews economic growth and structural change patterns since the 1960s, before critically reviewing the respective role and impact of trade liberalization, macroeconomic policies, governance and institutions on comparative national economic performance, particularly in developing countries. With country studies included to exemplify the issues at hand, this is a definitive guide to identifying, addressing and perhaps even finding a solution to this global phenomenon."--Jacket
Ageing and development( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That we all live longer is perhaps one of the greatest achievements of human progress. This book looks at how increasing numbers of older people across the globe are having a huge impact on the structure of populations, offering both challenges and opportunities for the future
Capital market liberalization and development by José Antonio Ocampo( Book )

19 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Capital market liberalization has been a key battle in the debate on globalization for much of the previous two decades. Many developing countries, often at the behest of international financial institutions such as the IMF, opened their capital accounts and liberalized their domestic financial markets as part of the wave of liberalization that characterized the 1980s and 1990s and in doing so exposed their economies to increased risk and volatility. Now with even the IMFacknowledging the risks inherent in capital market liberalization, the central intellectual battle over the effects of capit
Rethinking foreign investment for sustainable development : lessons for Latin America by Kevin Gallagher( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After almost twenty-five years of experimenting with the neo-liberal economic reforms collectively known as 'Washington Consensus' policies, Latin Americans are starting to re-assess the merits of these policies - at the voting booth. Many newly elected governments are beginning to scrutinize the role of foreign direct investment (FDI) in particular, and some nations have gone so far as to nationalize foreign firms. Without endorsing or condoning the actions taken by these governments, this volume demonstrates that it is quite rational for governments in the region to re-evaluate the role of FDI for their development paths. The great promise of FDI by multinational corporations is that capital will flow into your country and be a source of dynamic growth. Beyond boosting income and employment, the hope was that manufacturing FDI would bring knowledge spillovers that would build the skill and technological capacities of local firms, catalyzing broad-based economic growth; and environmental spillovers that would mitigate the domestic ecological impacts of industrial transformation. Consisting of country case studies and comparative analyses from Latin American and U.S.-based political economists, this volume finds that when FDI did materialize if often fell far short of generating the necessary linkages required to make FDI work for sustainable economic development
Growth divergences : explaining differences in economic performance( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, most developing countries have grown faster than the developed economies. This volume of analytical studies seeks to explain major differences in economic performance in recent decades by considering the dynamics of international economic growth, diverging growth rate, economic structures, and sources of demand, successes and collapses in the developing world, recent episodes of real income stagnation of countries. Several chapters critically review latest misleading claims and the conventional wisdom regarding the relationship of trade liberalization, financial development, development, aid, infrastructure spending, violent conflict, good governance, and industrial policy to economic growth.--Publisher's description
Global governance and rules for the post-2015 era : addressing emerging issues in the global environment by José Antonio Alonso( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Attention is increasingly being paid to the conceptualization of the sustainable development agenda that should guide global development efforts beyond 2015. New trends are shaping the international environment, suggesting that the world emerging from the recent economic and financial crisis will probably be very different from the one we have known so far. The emerging issues demand new concerted responses and new international efforts, which will have to be framed by new rules and more democratic and inclusive mechanisms of global governance. Global Governance and Rules for the Post 2015 Era provides a unique assessment of global rules and governance, a reflection of how global rules have been shaping development experiences and outcomes, an identification of the shortcomings of current global governance mechanisms and innovative suggestions for reforming and improving them. The various chapters analyse whether current rules and governance structures enables the building of effective responses against international problems and promote a fair distribution of development opportunities among countries. This book is a timely contribution to the discussions on a new global development agenda undertaken under the leadership of the United Nations. It reflects the outcome of a research programme by a group of independent development experts brought together by the United Nations Committee for Development Policy (CDP), a subsidiary body of the Economic and Social Council. It will be of interest to policymakers worldwide, experts of international agencies, scholars, students and the wider public"--The publisher
Towards full and decent employment( )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the international community has made a commitment to achieving full employment and decent work for all, this goal seems ever more distant in view of recent trends such as the growing unemployment and underemployment, the phenomenon of 'jobless growth', the growing 'casualization' of employment relations, the promotion of labour flexibility at the expense of welfare security, de-industrialization and the continued decline of peasant agriculture
Resetting the international monetary (non)system : a study prepared by the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) by José Antonio Ocampo( )

19 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International financial crises have plagued the world in recent decades, including the Latin American debt crisis of the 1980s, the East Asian crisis of the late twentieth century, and the global financial crisis of 2007-09. One of the basic problems faced during these crises is the lack of adequate preventive mechanisms, as well as insufficient instruments to finance countries in crisis and to overcome their over-indebtedness. 'Resetting the International Monetary (Non)System' provides an analysis of the global monetary system and the necessary reforms that it should undergo to play an active role in the twenty-first century and proposes a comprehensive yet evolutionary reform of the system. Criticising the ad hoc framework- a "(non)system"- that has evolved following the breakdown of the Bretton Woods arrangement in the early 1970's, 'Resetting the International Monetary (Non)System' places a special focus on the asymmetries that emerging and developing countries face, analysing the controversial management of crises by the International Monetary Fund and proposing a consistent set of reform proposals to design a better system of international monetary cooperation
International finance and development( Book )

22 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International Finance and Development offers a comprehensive survey of the major financing issues influencing economic development since the historic Monterrey Consensus of the International Conference on Financing for Development in 2002. As most recent international private capital flows have been unlikely to significantly enhance new productive investments in the developing countries, it is necessary to design appropriate mechanisms to ensure they contribute to development. However, recent trends in official development financing offer some grounds for optimism, although much more needs to be done. External debt problems of many developing countries, especially the least developed countries, seem likely to continue to constrain their prospects for development. The final part on systemic issues highlights new concerns and the modest progress in ensuring that the international monetary and financial system better serves economic growth and development throughout the world, especially in the developing countries."--Jacket
