Just give money to the poor : the development revolution from the global south by Joseph Hanlon( )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amidst all the complicated economic theories about the causes and solutions to poverty, one idea is so basic it seems radical: just give money to the poor. Despite its skeptics, researchers have found again and again that cash transfers given to significant portions of the population transform the lives of recipients. Countries from Mexico to South Africa to Indonesia are giving money directly to the poor and discovering that they use it wisely -- to send their children to school, to start a business and to feed their families. Directly challenging an aid industry that thrives on complexity and mystification, with highly paid consultants designing ever more complicated projects, Just Give Money to the Pooroffers the elegant southern alternative ' bypass governments and NGOs and let the poor decide how to use their money. Stressing that cash transfers are not charity or a safety net, the authors draw an outline of effective practices that work precisely because they are regular, guaranteed and fair. This book, the first to report on this quiet revolution in an accessible way, is essential reading for policymakers, students of international development and anyone yearning for an alternative to traditional poverty-alleviation methods. -- Back cover

This book is about South Africa's apartheid policy that led to worldwide demands for sanctions.

Zimbabwe takes back its land by Joseph Hanlon( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Countering the dominant media narratives of economic stagnation, Zimbabwe Takes Back Its Land offers a more positive and nuanced assessment of the results of the contentious land reforms that were introduced in Zimbabwe in 2000. The authors do not minimize the depredations of the Mugabe regime. Rather, they show how "ordinary" Zimbabweans have taken charge of their destinies in creative and unacknowledged ways on the farms that they obtained through the land-reform programs. They offer a compelling story of how, through collective action, the poor can improve their lives even in the midst of hostile circumstances. -- Publisher description

Peace without profit : how the IMF blocks rebuilding in Mozambique by Joseph Hanlon( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where is the boom which should have followed the end of Mozambique's war? Post-war reconstruction is slow. The economic crisis continues. Peasants returned to the countryside; nobody came to buy their crops. Workers went back to their factories; there was no money to buy their products." "History demonstrates that deflation is the opposite of what is needed. Mozambique has followed the IMF/World Bank prescription of structural adjustment: free market and deflation; deregulation and demand reduction. Wages, credit and government spending have been cut. This stops Mozambique rebuilding. It even prevents an active role by the private sector." "The donors have launched an attack on the excesses of stabilization. In 1995 the representative of the donors launched an unprecedented attack on the Bretton Woods institutions. This book explains the donor case. There was even an unexpected fight between the IMF and the World Bank." "Can aid ameliorate the distortions imposed by the IMF? Mozambique is one of the first African countries to try to rebuild after the war under the burdens of structural adjustment. What lessons are there for other African countries which must follow: Liberia, Rwanda, Zaire, Somalia, Sudan and Angola?"--Jacket

A decade of Mozambique : politics, economy and society 2004-2013 by Joseph Hanlon( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This chronology for 2004 to 2013 compiles the chapters on Mozambique previously published in the Africa Yearbook. Politics, Economy and Society South of the Sahara. The country has over the years remained one of the poorest, and poverty is not declining. But the discovery of huge gas fields could bring changes by the mid 2020s. During the period under review, the sheen began to fade from Mozambique's status as a donor darling, as donors increasingly objected to corruption while government was angered by donor impositions and took an increasingly autonomous line. The former liberation movement Frelimo remains the predominant party and has won all national elections, while two presidents have stepped down after two terms. The main opposition party Renamo retains an armed wing launching small military actions. A second opposition party gained control of four cities. A younger and better-educated generation that remembers neither the liberation struggle nor the 1982-92 civil war is beginning to challenge the established leadership.--
