Annual World Bank Conference on Development Economics, 1997 by Boris Pleskovic ( )
12 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 1997 World Bank Conference on Development Economics held April 30-May 1, 1997, addressed four themes:corruption, incentives and performance in public organizations, the transferability of high-growth experience, and poverty and the environment. Though the articles in this report focus on a broad agenda for development--examining the role of national and international institutions in eliminating corruption and strengthening the rule of law, and in promoting sustainable development and raising living standards--several common themes unite them:What is the appropriate role of the government? How should incentives in the public sector be structured? and what are the relationships among economic growth, poverty, and environmental sustainability? The articles discuss the role of government as an institution and the need to reexamine how regulations and incentive structures can improve the effectiveness of government and the productivity of the economy. They also look at the experiences of high-growth economies to determine how transferable those experiences are to other developing countries. Furthermore, they emphasize the importance of strengthening institutional structures such as property rights and land tenure and of establishing new markets, all of which may positively affect the environment and improve the living conditions of the rural poor

These are the proceedings of the Annual World Bank Conference on Development Economics, which gathers the global perspective of scholars, and practitioners of development policy from academic life, government, and the private sector. The selected topics seek to include new areas of concern, and current research, as well as areas believed to benefit from exposure to recent knowledge, and experience. This year's conference focused on new development thinking, crises and recovery, corporate governance and restructuring, and, social security, public and private savings. The opening address outlines challenges for development, that include the intransigence of poverty in Africa, and ways to establish public-private partnerships at the country, and global levels, while the keynote address identifies equilibrium, and change as the focus of development economics: long-term sustainable growth requires development of a consensus behind the reform policies. Discussions varied from crises and recovery, through perspectives on the recent history of transition economies, to arguments on the possibilities of poverty reduction on a grand scale. Other topics include the exploration of development strategies, revision of the role of aid in providing finance, changing policies, and knowledge transfer, and, how to coordinate development problems. -- Publisher description
