M. RaviSpatial disparities in human development perspectives from AsiaCase studiesSpatial disparities are a measure of the unequal distribution of income, wealth, power and resources between peoples in different locations. As a dimension of overall inequality, spatial disparities have added signifi cance when combined with regional divisions and political and ethnic tensions that can undermine social and political stability. The accurate measure-ment of spatial disparities and the analysis of their causes and consequences are therefore of particular importance. This book focuses on issues of poverty and inequality that are directly related to the Millennium Development Goals+-+877663537427913ocn181602357book20080.81Inequality and growth in modern China"This volume provides comprehensive updated coverage of inequality and poverty issues in China. Some of the methodologies developed herein are published for the first time and may be used in other contexts and for other countries. The use of different data sources and state-of-art research techniques ensures that the findings and conclusions can be substantiated and that the policy recommendations are reliable and robust. Contributors to this volume are renowned experts in their respective areas, including, notably, Justin Lin, Xing Meng, Kai-yuen Tsui, and Guanghua Wan. For these reasons, those with an interest in income distribution in general and China's development in particular, will find this volume essential reading. Rapidly rising inequality in China has contributed to the sluggishness of domestic demand and emerging poverty. It has thus exerted considerable pressure for commodity exports and represents a root cause of increased trade disputes. These have profound ramifications for the US, EU, and other economies, and the international business community. Consequently, economists and sociologists, among others, are increasingly focused upon inequality and poverty issues in China and relevant policy implications. This volume, arising from a two-year UNU-WIDER project, addresses issues that include the inequality-growth relationship, regional/personal variation in incomes and human well-being such as education, the determinants of inequality and poverty or their changes, gaps in innovation capability, and the role played by China's development strategies in affecting inequality"--Jacket+-+646080446527410ocn458730468book20100.76Southern engines of global growthCase studiesThe volume explores how the southern engines, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa are reshaping the world economy.

Arising from the UNU-WIDER research project 'Southern Engines of Global Growth', this volume explores the foundations of China and India's development experiences and strategies, and how these can provide practical lessons to other economies. It examines the patterns of productivity, international trade and investment inflows, and comparatively analyses the prospects, driving forces and implications of the rise of China and India as economic and political giants. This book is indispensable reading for all interested in development economics and international economics and politics. It also provides valuable lessons for other developing countries in the pursuit of poverty reduction, sustainable growth and innovative development strategies+-+382707587532420316ocn176820010book20080.76Wan, Guang HuaUnderstanding inequality and poverty in China : methods and applicationsThe ongoing campaign of ₁western development₂ launched in 1999 and the recent Chinese government initiative of ₁building a harmonious society₂ highlight the urgency and significance of analyzing inequality and poverty. Prominent contributors from China and around the world explore trends of inequality and poverty in China, identify their causes and assess their consequences. Issues explored within this volume include regional/personal variation in incomes, measures of human wellbeing - such as health and education - the gap between the coastal regions (which have strongly benefited from the expansion of China's exports) and the interior regions, and urban-rural disparity. This volume also examines the impact that a variety of different factors have had in determining inequality and poverty and their dynamics. Factors examined include resource endowment, location (including proximity to major transport links such as coastal ports), historical differences in the pace of economic development, the uneven impact of economic reform and imbalance in the provision of economic and social infrastructure.--Résumé de l'éditeur+-+09538058751395ocn863377599file20130.73Sridhar, Kala SeetharamUrbanization in Asia : governance, infrastructure and the environmentThis work focuses on urban governance in the developing world, its aim being to bring a holistic perspective to the debate on urban governance in Asia and around the globe. It has been divided into three sections: The first section is on rural interventions as they influence urbanization and its problems/solutions. The second focuses on urban governance, infrastructure programs, service delivery reforms and their evaluation. The third and final section focuses on urbanization and the environment. In the first section, we present evaluations of Indias rural programs including the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), and of Indias Total Sanitation Campaign (Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan). This section covers the transition from rural to urban areas, and highlights coping mechanisms in urban areas and policy implications for urban governance, from the viewpoint of rural migrants. The section on urban governance, infrastructure and service delivery is the most in-depth one and consists of papers that present state-of-the-art research on many aspects of infrastructure such as cost and time overruns, risks and their mitigation, assessments of the metro rail, and services such as solid waste management. The focus of the final section is on urbanization and the environment. Here we examine land use change in India, the relationship between urban form and residential energy use in Bandung, Indonesia, and end by depicting a cautiously optimistic view of Asias urbanization-environment nexus3314ocn057475348book20040.73Wan, Guang HuaGlobalization and regional income inequality : evidence from within China294ocn082173320book20050.95Zhongguo zhuan gui shi qi shou ru cha ju yu pin kun = Income inequality and poverty in transition China267ocn054950431book20040.56Shorrocks, Anthony FSpatial decomposition of inequality247ocn051523451book20020.84Wan, Guang HuaIncome inequality and growth in transition economies : are nonlinear models needed?206ocn051523115book20020.76Wan, Guang HuaRegression-based inequality decomposition : pitfalls and a solution procedure202ocn040619894book19980.47Zhou, Zhang-YueEstimating supply response of marketed surplus of grains for China192ocn062536618book20030.47Liu, Xiao-YunRegional feedgrain demand and supply in China : possible scenarios after the WTO accession183ocn223083694book19990.47Zhou, Zhang-YueSupply response of marketed surplus of grains in China147ocn066144107book20050.73Wang, JiaoEffects of WTO membership on income distribution and labour movement in China : a CGE analysisUsing a CGE model (PRCGEM) updated to 2002, the paper explores how WTO membership could affect earnings in 40 industries across 31 regions (and 8 regional blocks) of China during the period 2002-2007. Taking into account labour movement between regions within China, the direct contribution of WTO membership to overall economic growth and development is predicted to be small, with a rise in real GDP of only 6.48% short term and 5.6% long term. However, structural economic change and the WTO shock should increase regional output, especially in the established coastal economies. Regional labour movement is found to increase 69.2% at the completion of economic structural reforms. A slight decrease in the Gini coefficient for income inequality is also anticipated131ocn038758401book19960.47Zhou, Zhang-YueIntegration of rice markets in China131ocn038758264book19960.47Zhou, Zhang-ZhouChina's grain supply response in the era of economic reforms108ocn835596190art20040.92Wan, Guang HuaIncome inequality in rural China regression-based decomposition using household data76ocn836333292com20060.73Zhang, YinGlobalization and the urban poor in China71ocn438952989book20090.92Quan qiu jing ji zeng zhang de nan bu yin qing -- Zhongguo, Yindu, Baxi ji Nanfei xue shu tao lun huiFa zhan zhong da guo de jing zheng : Zhongguo he Yindu shui jiang sheng chu = Competition between the developing nationsConference proceedings+-+K515304465+-+K515304465Fri Mar 21 15:49:40 EDT 2014batch20547
