Описание: This book provides an overview of the health of developing nations in the early twenty-first century. It offers broad coverage, ranging from health transition in developing countries, to the health of women, to an analysis of morbidity.
Описание: Getting accurate data on less developed countries has created great problems for studying these areas. Yet until recently students of development economics have relied on standard econometrics texts, which assume a Western context. This text intends to address this problem.
A comprehensive and rigorous text that shows how a basic open economy model can be extended to answer important macroeconomic questions that arise in emerging markets.
This rigorous and comprehensive textbook develops a basic small open economy model and shows how it can be extended to answer many important macroeconomic questions that arise in emerging markets and developing economies, particularly those regarding monetary, fiscal, and exchange rate issues. Eschewing the complex calibrated models on which the field of international finance increasingly relies, the book teaches the reader how to think in terms of simple models and grasp the fundamentals of open economy macroeconomics.
After analyzing the standard intertemporal small open economy model, the book introduces frictions such as imperfect capital markets, intertemporal distortions, and nontradable goods, into the basic model in order to shed light on the economy's response to different shocks. The book then introduces money into the model to analyze the real effects of monetary and exchange rate policy. It then applies these theoretical tools to a variety of important macroeconomic issues relevant to developing countries (and, in a world of continuing financial crisis, to industrial countries as well), including the use of a nominal interest rate as a main policy instrument, the relative merits of flexible and predetermined exchange rate regimes, and the targeting of "real anchors." Finally, the book analyzes in detail specific topics such as inflation stabilization, "dollarization," balance of payments crises, and, inspired by recent events, financial crises. Each chapter includes boxes with relevant empirical evidence and ends with exercises. The book is suitable for use in graduate courses in development economics, international finance, and macroeconomics.

Описание: First published in 1979, this study focuses upon two of the major economic problems faced by developing countries: massive foreign debts and the shortage of foreign funds offered on concessional terms for development purposes. The relationship between the two is highlighted in the effect that debt accumulation has on ministering the increase of debt service payments, and to lessen resources for development purposes.The author advances an integrated proposal for using debt relief as an end in itself, - to reduce the level of indebtedness, and as a means to a further end, - to provide additional funds for development.
Описание: There is a widespread concern that, in some parts of the world, governments are unable to exercise effective authority. When governments fail, more sinister
forces thrive: warlords, arms smugglers, narcotics enterprises, kidnap gangs, terrorist networks, armed militias. Why do governments fail? This book explores an old idea that has
returned to prominence: that authority, effectiveness, accountability and responsiveness is closely related to the ways in which governments are financed.
It matters that
governments tax their citizens rather than live from oil revenues and foreign aid, and it matters how they tax them. Taxation stimulates demands for representation, and an effective
revenue authority is the central pillar of state capacity. Using case studies from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America, this book presents and evaluates these argu
ents, updates theories derived from European history in the light of conditions in contemporary poorer countries, and draws conclusions for policy-makers.

Описание: Establishes a new paradigm for development centred on the idea of human wellbeing.
Описание: The book provides an overview of quantitative approaches to analyse the effects of economic policy reforms on sustainable land use in developing countries. It illustrates recent advances in modelling approaches at the plot, household, regional and national level. Special attention is paid to the influence of market failures and other aspects of the institutional environment on the policy-response of households in developing countries, and to problems of linking biophysical and economic models. Four key issues in quantifying relationships between economic policy and agricultural land use are used to compare the different modelling approaches. The book concludes with suggestions for future research aiming at increasing our understanding of the impact of policy instruments on soil quality.
