' ... An important and timely contribution to the study of South-South economic relations. It provides a cogent and detailed analysis ... '-Henock Kifle, South Letter ' ... provides some interesting insights into the determinants and consequences of South-South trade.'- Frances Stewart, The World Economy 'This comprehensive, incisive work ... represents both historical depth and topical breadth. ... This well-written analysis makes an important contribution to development studies, including development economics and development geography.'- Georges G. Cravins, The Journal of Asian Studies These essays explore interactions between North and South and South and South in trade, technology and finance, focusing on the interests of the South, and particularly the poor. The 'conventional' neo-classical approach is shown to have many theoretical deficiences, the consequences are often harmful to Southern interests, while the poor are neglected. The author concludes that the South should adopt a bargaining approach to N-S negotiations and urges for closer South-South relations in trade, technology and finance

The 16 contributors to this volume examine ways in which the international economic system could be reformed in order better to meet the needs and aspirations of the developing world in the coming decades

Alternative development strategies in subSaharan Africa ( Book )
17 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 274 libraries worldwide
"Policy-making in Africa today is dominated by the adjustment policies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The book considers the consistency between these policies and long-run development needs. Detailed analysis of country experience shows that the past record in many African economies was deficient--especially in the failure to build up human capabilities, inadequate institutional development, distorted incentives and a bias against small-scale industry. The book proposes an alternative strategy containing seven elements: an agrarian focus; support for rural non-agricultural development; the promotion of industrialization; regional import substitution; diversification of exports; development of human capabilities; and participation and institution-building. Serious inconsistencies are found between the achievement of such a strategy and current adjustment policies. In a number of important respects the adjustment policies are moving African economies away from an appropriate long-run pattern of development, especially through the cuts in expenditures on education, infrastructure and investment generally, the de-industrialization that has occurred and the strong emphasis on primary commodity exports."--BOOK JACKET
