Social dimensions of adjustment : World Bank experience, 1980-93 by Carl Jayarajah( Book )

20 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive study by the Bank's independent Operations Evaluation Department looks at all the evaluated adjustment operations supported by the Bank in 1980-93 (114 operations in 53 countries) and tracks what happened to poverty and income distribution. The findings dispel some popular myths about adjustment lending: 1) two-thirds of the 53 countries implemented the adjustment policies agreed with the Bank with a substantial measure of success. They reduced price distortions and inflation, stabilized their foreign exchange reserves, and achieved growth in income per head; 2) countries that successfully implemented adjustment reduced poverty; and 3) successful adjusters maintained or increased their social spending. The principal message of the study is that good macroeconomic policies and measures - combined with relevant sectoral policies and appropriate public expenditure allocation - provide a favorable environment for accelerating savings and investment, both necessary for sustained economic growth and poverty reduction. In all the cases studied, growth and poverty reduction have been closely related. Finally, the study confirms previous OED findings regarding borrower ownership: the most common reason why adjustment efforts fail is poor government commitment. Thus, the Bank should lend for adjustment only where governments are committed to reforms and likely to sustain them
Microfinance for entrepreneurial development : sustainability and inclusion in emerging markets by Douglas Cumming( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited collection presents recent developments, practical innovations, and policy reforms in the realm of microfinance in emerging markets. Microfinance has been hotly debated by ever-colliding camps of ardent supporters, who believe that microfinance addresses credit market failures and provides a durable answer to the problem of the poverty, and staunch critics, who argue that lending by microfinance institutions is wasteful, and the interest rates are too high. To bring further insight into this important debate, this book presents comprehensive historical, political, and economic perspectives on the latest issues in microfinance. An impressive array of scholars and practitioners build a framework for thinking about regulation to drive sustainable, inclusive development. With case studies of programs in India, Ghana, and Bangladesh, and examinations of the effects of gender and religion on financial decision-making, this comprehensive collection offers something valuable to scholars, policymakers, and practitioners--anyone with a vested interest in promoting innovation in microfinance
