Vulnerability in developing countries by Wim A Naudé( Book )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 237 libraries worldwide
"In all of the major challenges facing the world currently, whether it be climate change, terrorism and conflict, or urbanization and demographic change, no progress is possible without the alleviation of poverty. New approaches in development economics have in recent years started from the premise that we cannot successfully deal with poverty unless we also deal with vulnerability - but not only vulnerability to income poverty but also vulnerability to various others hazards - such as climate, conflict, macroeconomic shocks and natural disasters. This book provide insights into new approaches in conceptualising and measuring vulnerability. It includes chapters dealing with advanced issues such as the compilation of economic vulnerability indices (EVIs) on a macro-level, of conceptualizing and measuring local vulnerability across regions in a country, and of measuring the flip-side of vulnerability, namely resilience. The book also explores the sensitivities of the various measurements of vulnerability to vulnerability lines, poverty lines, and permanent income, with consideration to some of the most vulnerable groups in developing countries. Overall, the contributions in the book consolidate new approaches as far as the concept and measurement of vulnerability on different levels and outcomes are concerned, and note directions for future research"--Publisher description

Fragile states : causes, costs, and responses : a study prepared by the World Institute for Development Economics Research of the United Nations University (UNU-WIDER) by Wim A Naudé( Book )
16 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
"Overcoming state fragility is one of the most important international development objectives of the 21st century. Many fragile states have turned into failed states, where millions of people are caught in deprivation and seemingly hopeless conditions. Fragile states lack the authority, legitimacy, and capacity that a modern state needs to advance the development of its peoples, and present deep challenges for the design and implementation of development policy. For instance, how is aid to be designed and delivered in a way that will help people in fragile states if their governments lack capacity to absorb and use aid? And what can be done about adverse side-effects of fragile states on their neighbours and the global community, such as heightened insecurity, rising out-migration, displaced populations, and the destruction of natural resources? This book documents the far reaching global repercussions of state fragility and provides a timely contribution to the international discourse on three dimensions of fragile states: their causes, costs, and the responses required. It will appeal to scholars, policymakers, and donors who are concerned about conflict and development. Its aim is to contribute to our understanding of how strong and accountable states can be fostered-states where government and civil society progressively advance human wellbeing, underpin households' resilience in the face of shocks, and form effective partnerships to maximize the benefits of development assistance."--Publisher's website

Trade liberalisation and trade performance in the Dominican Republic by Amelia Uliafnova Santos Paulino( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
This paper analyses the evolution of trade policy reforms in the Dominican Republic (DR). It also evaluates the impact of trade liberalisation on exports, imports, and the trade account of the balance of payments. The study shows that the DR has made significant progress towards a more open trade regime, particularly through the elimination of non-tariff barriers and through the simplification of the tariff structure and the reduction in the rates of duties. In addition, the process of liberalisation has affected export and import growth, almost by the same magnitude, although the export response is somewhat higher. The trade account shows a positive reaction to trade liberalisation, that is, an improvement in the ratio of the trade balance to GDP of one percentage point. This is an indication of the higher export growth in comparison to import growth following liberalisation. Keywords: trade liberalisation, import growth, export growth, balance of payments, developing countries

The effects of trade liberalization on imports in selected developing countries by Amelia Uliafnova Santos Paulino( Article )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"This paper analyses the impact of the reduction of tariff and nontariff barriers on the imports of 22 selected developing countries, utilizing dynamic panel data techniques. Domestic income and relative prices are found to be significant determinants of import growth. In addition the results indicate that import duties reduce import growth, but the effect varies according to the region and the type of trade policy regime existing in the country. The results also show that the elimination of trade policy distortions has a strong, positive impact on import growth. Finally, it is found that income and price elasticities are higher as a result of trade policy reform."--Editor

Trading inequality? : insights from the two globalizations in Latin America by A. Leticia Arroyo Abad( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Trade flows among countries have increased dramatically during the last globalization episode creating new winners and losers between and within countries. This paper revisits the contested topic of the impact of globalization on within-country inequality in Latin America from a historical perspective. By comparing the two globalization waves (1870-1914, 1970-present) we look at the link between globalization and inequality. Many Latin American countries are still dependent on exporting raw materials, lack an efficient manufacturing sector, and exhibit the highest inequality rates in the world. One hundred years ago, several decades after independence, the region was also highly unequal, specialized in a handful of commodity exports, and had not made the transition to industrialization. The results indicate that the effect of globalization on inequality operates mainly inducing changes in factor endowments while the adoption of labor-saving technologies appears influential in both periods. -- income inequality ; economic history ; globalisation ; terms of trade ; Latin America

Economic development strategies in the Dominican Republic by Susan Pozo( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The paper documents the economic development strategies pursued by the Dominican Republic. The study argues that the country's success results from the implementation of a three-pronged economic development strategy. The first prong relates to diversifying production and the second to developing special economic zones. These zones operate in parallel fashion to the rest of the economy but with protections from domestic impediments to growth and progress. The third item in the recipe involves maintaining ample economic and social engagement with the rest of the world. The paper also highlights challenges that the country faces going forward. -- economic development strategies ; primary commodities ; special economic zones ; economic openness ; Dominican Republic
