Has globalization gone too far? by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
15 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 1,524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Globalization is exposing social fissures between those with the education, skills, and mobility to flourish in an unfettered world market-the apparent "winners"-and those without. These apparent "losers" are increasingly anxious about their standards of living and their precarious place in an integrated world economy. The result is severe tension between the market and broad sectors of society, with governments caught in the middle. Compounding the very real problems that need to be addressed by all involved, the kneejerk rhetoric of both sides threatens to crowd out rational debate. From the United States to Europe to Asia, positions are hardening. Author Dani Rodrik brings a clear and reasoned voice to these questions.Has Globalization Gone Too Far? takes an unblinking and objective look at the benefits-and risks-of international economic integration, and criticizes mainstream economists for downplaying its dangers

The globalization paradox : democracy and the future of the world economy by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handbook of development economics by T. Paul Schultz ( Book )
28 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This handbook organizes chapters by sets of policies that are important components of discussions about how to facilitate development. In each chapter, authors identify and discuss the relevant theoretical and empirical literature that describes the fundamental problems that the policies seek to remedy or ameliorate, as well as the literature that evaluates the effects of the policies
One economics, many recipes : globalization, institutions, and economic growth by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In One Economics, Many Recipes, leading economist Dani Rodrik argues that neither globalizers nor antiglobalizers have got it right. While economic globalization can be a boon for countries that are trying to dig out of poverty, success usually requires following policies that are tailored to local economic and political realities rather than obeying the dictates of the international globalization establishment. A definitive statement of Rodrik's original and influential perspective on economic growth and globalization, One Economics, Many Recipes shows how successful countries craft their own unique strategies--and what other countries can learn from them. To most proglobalizers, globalization is a source of economic salvation for developing nations, and to fully benefit from it nations must follow a universal set of rules designed by organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization and enforced by international investors and capital markets. But to most antiglobalizers, such global rules spell nothing but trouble, and the more poor nations shield themselves from them, the better off they are. Rodrik rejects the simplifications of both sides, showing that poor countries get rich not by copying what Washington technocrats preach or what others have done, but by overcoming their own highly specific constraints. And, far from conflicting with economic science, this is exactly what good economics teaches."
In search of prosperity : analytic narratives on economic growth by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The economics of growth has come a long way since it regained centerstage for economists in the mid-1980s. Here for the first time is aseries of country studies guided by that research. The thirteenessays, by leading economists, shed light on some of the mostimportant growth puzzles of our time. How did China grow so rapidlydespite the absence of full-fledged private property rights? Whathappened in India after the early 1980s to more than double its growthrate? How did Botswana and Mauritius avoid the problems that othercountries in sub--Saharan Africa succumbed to? How did Indonesiamanage
The new global economy and developing countries : making openness work by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Policy-makers in the developing world are grappling with new dilemmas created by openness to trade and capital flows. What role, if any, remains for the state in promoting industrialization/ Does openness worsen inequality and, if so, what can be done about it? What is the best way to handle turbulence from the world economy, especially the fickleness of international capital flows? In this work, the author argues that successful integration into the world economy requires a complementary set of policies and institutions at home. Policy-makers must reinforce their external strategy of liberalization with an internal strategy that gives the state substantial responsibility in building physical and human capital and mediating social conflicts

The globalization paradox : why global markets, states, and democracy can't coexist by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For a century, economists have driven forward the cause of globalization in financial institutions, labour markets, and trade. Yet there have been consistent warning signs that a global economy and free trade might not always be advantageous. Where are the pressure points? What could be done about them?Dani Rodrik examines the back-story from its seventeenth-century origins through the milestones of the gold standard, the Bretton Woods Agreement, and the Washington Consensus, to the present day. Although economic globalization has enabled unprecedented levels of prosperity in advanced countrie
Das Globalisierungs-Paradox : die Demokratie und die Zukunft der Weltwirtschaft by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
10 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
HauptbeschreibungDie bislang vorherrschende, neoliberale Globalisierungslehre hilft nicht weiter, sondern hat die jüngsten Krisen sogar mit verursacht. Das zeigt der renommierte Ökonom Dani Rodrik auf anschauliche und sympathische Weise anhand zahlreicher historischer Rückblicke, persönlicher Erlebnisse und harter ökonomischer Fakten. Das Globalisierungs-Paradox ist ein provokativer Blick auf die Exzesse der Hyperglobalisierung - es sollte Pflichtlektüre sein für alle, die sich eine Welt ohne Finanzkrisen und unfaire Handelspraktiken wünschen. Prof. Nouriel Roubini, Autor von Das Ende der Wel
Why do more open economies have bigger governments? by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
19 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper demonstrates that there is a robust empirical association between the extent to which an economy is exposed to trade and the size of its government sector. This association holds for a large cross-section of countries, in low- as well as high-income samples, and is robust to the inclusion of a wide range of controls. The explanation appears to be that government consumption plays a risk-reducing role in economies exposed to a significant amount of external risk. When openness is interacted with explicit measures of external risk, such as terms-of-trade uncertainty and product concentration of exports, it is the interaction terms that enter significantly, and the openness term loses its significance (or turns negative). The paper also demonstrates that government consumption is the majority of countries
Trade policy and economic growth : a skeptic's guide to the cross-national evidence by Francisco Rodríguez ( Book )
21 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Do countries with lower policy-induced barriers to international trade grow faster, once other relevant country characteristics are controlled for? There exists a large empirical literature providing an affirmative answer to this question. We argue that methodological problems with the empirical strategies employed in this literature leave the results open to diverse interpretations. In many cases, the indicators of openness' used by researchers are poor measures of trade barriers or are highly correlated with other sources of bad economic performance. In other cases, the methods used to ascertain the link between trade policy and growth have serious shortcomings. Papers that we review include Dollar (1992), Ben-David (1993), Sachs and Warner (1995), and Edwards (1998). We find little evidence that open trade policies--in the sense of lower tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade--are significantly associated with economic growth
Democracies pay higher wages by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
24 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Controlling for labor productivity, income levels, and other possible determinants, there is a robust and statistically significant association between the extent of democratic rights and wages received by workers. The association exists both across countries and over time within countries. The coefficient estimates suggest that non-negligible wage improvements result from the enhancement of democratic institutions: average wages in a country like Mexico would be expected to increase by 10-30 percent were Mexico to attain a level of democracy comparable to that prevailing in the U.S
Where did all the growth go? : external shocks, social conflict, and growth collapses by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
21 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper argues that domestic social conflicts are a key to understanding why growth rates lack persistence and why so many countries have experienced a growth collapse after the mid-1970s. It emphasizes conflicts interact with external shocks on the one hand, and the domestic institutions of conflict-management on the other. Econometric evidence provides support for this hypothesis. Countries that experienced the sharpest drops in growth after 1975 were those with divided societies (as measured by indicators of inequality, ethnic fragmentation, and the like) and with weak institutions of conflict management (proxied by indicators of the quality of governmental institutions, rule of law, democratic rights, and social safety nets)
From "Hindu growth" to productivity surge : the mystery of the Indian growth transition by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
23 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Most conventional accounts of India's recent economic performance associate the pick-up in economic growth with the liberalization of 1991. This paper demonstrates that the transition to high growth occured around 1980, a full decade before economic liberalization. We investigate a number of hypotheses about the causes of this growth favorable external environment, fiscal stimulus, trade liberalization, internal liberalization, the green revolution, public investment and find them wanting. We argue that growth was triggered by an attitudinal shift on the part of the national government towards a pro-business (as opposed to pro-liberalization) approach. We provide some evidence that is consistent with this argument. We also find that registered manufacturing built up in previous decades played an important role in influencing the pattern of growth across the Indian states"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site
Why is there multilateral lending? by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
19 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: Why should multilateral lending exist in a world where private capital markets are well developed and governments have their own bilateral aid programs? If lending by the World Bank, IMF, and regional development banks has an independent rationale, it must rest on advantages generated by the multilateral nature of these institutions. There are in principle two such advantages. First, since information on the quality of investment environments in different countries is in many ways a collective good, multilateral agencies are in a better position to internalize the externalities that may arise. This creates a rationale for multilateral lending in terms of information provision, particularly in terms of monitoring of government policies in recipient countries. Second, as long as multilateral agencies retain some degree of autonomy from the governments that own them, their interaction with recipient countries, while official in nature, can remain less politicized than inter- governmental links. This in turn endows multilateral agencies with an advantage in the exercise of conditionality, (that is, in lending that is conditional on changes in government policies). Neither of these two potential advantages of multilateral lending has much to do with lending per se. However, multilateral lending may be required to make these agencies' tasks incentive compatible. The empirical analysis reveals little evidence that multilateral lending has acted as a catalyst for private capital flows
Feasible globalizations by Dani Rodrik ( Book )
21 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: The nation-state system, democratic politics, and full economic integration are mutually incompatible. Of the three, at most two can be had together. The Bretton Woods/GATT regime was successful because its architects subjugated international economic integration to the needs and demands of national economic management and democratic politics. A renewed 'Bretton-Woods compromise' would preserve some limits on integration, while crafting better global rules to handle the integration that can be achieved. Among 'feasible glablization,' the most promising is a multilaterally negotiated visa scheme that allows expanded (but temporary) entry into the advanced nations of a mix of skilled and unskilled workers from developing nations. Such a scheme would likely create income gains that are larger than all of the items on the WTO negotiating agenda taken together, even if it resulted in a relatively small increase in cross-border labor flows
