9781842778364: Policy Matters: Economic and Social Policies to Sustain Equitable Development

In 2000 the UN pledged to halve world poverty by 2015 as part of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), but progress has been elusive, and consensus difficult to achieve. These papers reveal disparate problems faced by the UN in developing a coherent Development Agenda, from the complex effects of trade and finance liberalization to the damaging realities of development aid, itself a central pillar of the MDGs. The unifying theme is one of economic and social integration, and an emphasis on long-term strategic investment in education, health and infrastructure. By challenging mainstream economic thought, this book is required reading for students, academics and activists wanting to engage in the debate, and help the MDGs reach a positive conclusion.

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Policy Matters advances the analytical debate in elaborating relevant economic and social policies to achieve more sustainable and equitable development in our times. Early chapters underscore the importance of ensuring equity, not only as a desirable end in itself, but also to enhance economic growth and ensure social stability and political security. The following chapters suggest that the promises of trade and financial liberalization have not been realized. Trade liberalization may well have worsened unemployment as well as working conditions besides undermining existing productive capacities and reducing the `policy space for developing better and competitive new economic capacities. Meanwhile, financial liberalization does not seem to have contributed to economic growth while exacerbating economic volatility, instability and crises. The debates on `scaling up aid and aid-induced `welfare colonialism as well as appropriate monetary and exchange rate policies are engaged. The issue of poverty programme targeting efficiency and the social policy debate on universalism versus targeting conclude this rich and important volume. Bookseller Inventory # AAR9781842778364
