Interdependence, disequilibrium, and growth : reflections on the political economy of North-South relations at the turn of the century by John Loxley( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the evolution of North-South economic interaction since the early 1980s, this book begins by examining structural changes in global patterns of production, trade, and finance since the mid-1950s in order to situate the growing heterogeneity of southern countries and the importance of this for the way their economic activities articulate with those of northern countries. The importance of industrialization is assessed along with the ability of southern countries to replicate it. An examination is made of how different groups of southern countries have been affected by the increasing instability of the economies of the major capitalist powers since the 1970s. The likely implications for the South of the different solutions put forward to deal with the US balance of payments deficit are explored, as are the ramifications of the possible emergence of strong regional trading blocs in the North, the implications for the South of the liberalization of economic relations under the auspices of the General Agreement on Tariffs & Trade, and the significance of the collapse of the Soviet bloc. Finally, questions are raised about the growth imperative underlying economic policy in both the North and South, its desirability and long-term feasibility. Alternative approaches to development are discussed which assume radical changes in the locus of political power, in the distribution of wealth, and in the morality of underlying economic and social behaviour

Doing community economic development by John Loxley( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging traditional notions of development, these essays examine bottom-up, community economic-development strategies in a wide variety of contexts - as a means of improving lives in rural, and inner-city settings, shaped and driven by women and by Aboriginal people, and aimed at employment creation for the most marginalized. Most authors have employed a participatory research methodology, but all of the essays are the product of a broader, three-year community-university research collaboration. This same collaboration focuses on the strengths and difficulties of participatory, capacity-building strategies for those marginalized by the competitive, profit-seeking forces of capitalism. Many exciting initiatives with great potential are described and critically evaluated, along with on-the-ground descriptions of a wide variety of community economic-development projects, from urban aboriginal businesses to the rural and agricultural fields

5 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Loxley has worked in community economic development as a practitioner, advisor, teacher and scholar for over 30 years. The wealth of that experience is reflected in this book, which grapples with the conceptual and political complexities of addressing northern and Aboriginal poverty. Loxley examines a number of possible approaches to economic development, placing each within a broader theoretical and policy perspective, and considering its growth potential and class impact. Accessible and theoretically sophisticated, the book blends international development theory with northern Canadian and Aboriginal realities. It includes an important chapter on traditional Aboriginal values and culture and their relationship to the land."--Pub. desc

Transforming or reforming capitalism : towards a theory of community economic development by John Loxley( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Growing worldwide interest in community economic development has led to a blossoming of “how to” manuals,as well as analyses of co-operatives, development corporations, gender, financing, etc. Yet in all this discussion very little is said about the basic objective of CED: Is it designed to fill holes left by capitalism or is it intended to replace it? There is equally little on a theory of CED. This book draws on several disciplines -- particularly economics, sociology and political studies -- to assess the state of CED theory and to identify implicit issues for building that theory. It emphasizes the necessity to draw theoretical insights from each discipline, in the process howing the efficacy of interdisciplinary approaches. It concludes with a discussion of both future theoretical directions and of what existing theory has to say about achieving a transformative CED."--pub. website
