Adjustment with a human face by Giovanni Andrea Cornia( Book )
38 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in 6 languages and held by 620 libraries worldwide
After three decades of remarkable progress, improvements in the welfare of children and other vulnerable groups in many parts of the world began to falter in the 1980s. This study draws on UNICEF work and experience of recent years to illustrate the extent of the current crisis and point to ways to alleviate the effects caused by economic adjustment. Volume 1, published in October, developed a strategy for protecting vulnerable populations during adjustment. The strategy, "Adjustment with a Human Face", combines the promotion of economic growth, protection of the vulnerable, and macro-economic adjustment. This volume, volume 2, examines in closer detail the experiences of the ten countries used as the basis for this strategy. The successes of governments in protecting vulnerable groups in South Korea, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Peru are appraised and contrasted with the failures in Brazil, Ghana, Jamaica, and the Philippines. Sri Lanka and Chile are also considered

From adjustment to development in Africa : conflict, controversy, convergence, consensus? ( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 290 libraries worldwide
"The economic crisis in sub-Saharan Africa in the 1980s and 1990s has generated fierce debate among analysts and policy-makers concerning its causes and appropriate ways out of it. The 'structural adjustment' programmes promoted by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have been at the centre of the debate. This volume brings together economists from these international financial institutions and some of the best known of their critics to show where the debate now-stands. A distinguished collection of African and international economists offers up-to-date analysis of the key policy issues in structural adjustment in Africa." "Among the policies addressed are those in the spheres of agriculture, trade, exchange rates, privatisation, investment, social sectors, external relations and democratisation. An introductory interpretive essay searches for areas of consensus and identifies those of continuing controversy. In no other place is there such an up-to-date, informed and comprehensive analysis of the debate over African recovery."--BOOK JACKET

Pro-poor macroeconomics : potential and limitations by G Cornia( Book )
15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
Halving poverty incidence in developing countries by 2015 has become the centerpiece of the international development debate. The ability to reach this goal depends on the nature of public policies. While some consensus has been achieved over the last two decades about the development and social policies that reduce poverty, similar agreement is nowhere in sight for macroeconomic policies, and the discord has intensified with the liberalization of international capital movements and the intensification of financial crises. This volume proposes some broad principles that should permit macroeconomically sustainable poverty reduction. While the ways of reaching this objective can only be country specific, the volume presents some broad principles that may inspire macroeconomic policy in different countries. Such principles include the adoption of policies for the ex-ante crisis avoidance and maintenance of a reasonable macroeconomic balance; retaining a competitive and stable real exchange rate encouraging investments in the labour-intensive tradable sector; low to moderate real interest rates; strong institutions for the regulation of the financial and banking sector; measures to mobilize domestic savings and speed up the accumulation of capital; trade liberalization that avoids a collapse of the import competing sectors, while removing any anti-export sector bias; and preservation of adequate pro-poor and pro-growth public expenditure during stabilization
