Founded in 1987, Bangladesh Development Initiative (BDI) is a U.S.-based think tank of scholars and professionals engaged in the generation and dissemination of knowledge and policy prescriptions on a wide ranging development issues of Bangladesh. As part of its activities, BDI has been involved in the semi-annual publication of its peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary journal (Journal of Bangladesh Studies), publication of edited volumes and periodically holding conferences on development issues. The papers in this volume are those selected for publication from the fourth BDI conference held at the University of California-Berkeley on February 22-24, 2013. The theme of the conference was “Bridging the Policy-Action Divide: Challenges and Prospects for Bangladesh.” The conference was divided into several tracks, including one track devoted to economic issues. This volume specifically reflects that track and is a collection of nine papers on the Bangladesh economy that underwent a rigorous peer review.
