Globalization and the developing countries : emerging strategies for rural development and poverty alleviation by David Bigman( Book )
15 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 445 libraries worldwide
This book reviews the impact of globalization by examining, for example, how changes in global trading rules and regulations, the removal of trade barriers, and the elimination of many country-specific and commodity-specific agreements affect the economies of developing countries. In particular, it studies the effect of these factors on the agricultural sectors of these countries. Part I of the book (chapter 1) is a general background to the reviews of the experience of individual countries. It provides a survey of the debates over the benefits of globalization for developing countries and the merits of the development and trade strategies promoted by the World Bank and the IMF since the late 1960s. Part II (chapters 2-6) examines the effects of the changes in the global trading system and the impact of internal policy reforms in selected developing countries (China, India, Ghana, Kenya and Cameroon) on their economy and their agricultural sector. The reviews focus on the reforms implemented by these countries under their various structural adjustment programmes and their subsequent agreements as they joined the World Trade Organization (WTO). Part III (chapters 7-10) reviews the impact of a number of key changes in the rules, standards, and institutions that govern the global trading system under the WTO Agreements and their effect on the agricultural sector and on public agricultural research. The reviews cover the changes that followed the agreements on global standards for agricultural trade and intellectual property rights, the restructuring of the global trading system for many agricultural products in supply chains that are often dominated by multinational corporations, and the growing share of the private sector in agricultural research. Part IV (chapters 11-15) focuses more specifically on the necessary changes in the role and mode of operation of public agricultural research. The book has a subject index

Enterprise arrears in Russia : causes and policy options by David Bigman( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the causes of the large buildup of enterprise arrears in Russia during 1992, and evaluates policy options to deal with them. Noting the experience of Eastern European countries, the paper emphasizes that the settlement of arrears through wholesale extension of credit would only achieve a temporary reduction of arrears while inviting moral hazard problems and creating expectations of future bailouts. Instead, emphasis should be placed on measures that instill financial discipline and promote necessary structural changes. These measures should be supported by adequate legislation, effective supervision, and credible sanctions against defaulting enterprises and their managers
