What Can We Learn from Alternative Theories of Economic Development? Ingrid Harvold Kvangraven

Review of Kenneth S. Rogoff – The Curse of Cash Jayati Ghosh

Published by :Princeton University Press 2016     ISBN-10: 0691172137        ISBN-13: 978-0691172132 Kenneth Rogoff is among the more prolific and topical of US economists – and certainly no less controversial for all that. As former Chief Economist of the IMF, Rogoff was famously embroiled in a debate with Joseph Stiglitz, former Chief Economist of the World Bank, on the merits of and concerns about globalisation (of which he has been a fervent supporter). Subsequently, he has waded into many issues of current concern with a mix of theoretical and empirical analysis and strong policy conclusions. Perhaps unremarkably given the state of academic…

The Unmaking of Arab Socialism Ali Kadri

Publisher:  Anthem Press                            ISBN 9781783084401 About This Book Conditions of malnutrition, conflict, or a combination of both characterize many Arab countries, but this was not always so. As in much of the developing world, the immediate post-independence period was an age of hope and relative prosperity. But imperialism did not sleep while these countries developed, and it soon intervened to destroy these post-independence achievements. The two principal defeats and losses of territory to Israel in 1967 and 1973, as well as the others that followed, left in their wake more than the destruction of assets and the loss of human…

Rethinking Bilateral Investment Treaties: Critical Issues and Policy Choices Edited by: Kavaljit Singh and Burghard Ilge

About the Book Jointly Published by Both ENDS, Madhyam and SOMO The cross-border investment flows are currently governed by bilateral and regional investment treaties. Today, more than 3,000 BITs are in existence globally. However, there are signs of growing unease with the BIT regime across countries and regions.
