Adjustment, employment & missing institutions in Africa : the experience in Eastern & Southern Africa by Willem van der Geest( )

16 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book identifies 'missing institutions' as a major reason for the often patchy implementation of structural reform policies. In most African countries the labour force is growing faster than new jobs, leading to increased informalization of the economy. Case studies concentrate on Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi, where less than ten per cent of the labour force work in the formal sector, as compared with some twenty to forty per cent in the 1960s. Public sector workers have been reduced but there have not been enough jobs to compensate in the rest of the formal sector. The educa

The financial crisis and developing countries : a global multidisciplinary perspective( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using heterodox and mainstream methodologies, the book develops a multidisciplinary perspective on the crisis, showing empirical impacts on the poor and vulnerable. It examines how the crisis continues to change our concepts of development, critically discusses mainstream approaches, and analyses (global) governance responses including of the G20. The contributors critically assess the measures taken to deal with the crisis, and reveal that many elements that have led to crisis (inequality, inappropriate international financial architecture, structural imbalances) have not been dealt sufficiently, and as a result new crises will continue to emerge. -- Back cover

13 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely book documents and analyses the seriousness of growing national inequality in different regions around the world. It argues that the treatment of inequality in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is wholly insufficient due to their failure to recognise the growing difference between the income of work and the income of capital and the super rich, and the strain this places on a country's social fabric."--
