In this important policy-and campaign-relevant book, economists, intellectuals and NGO leaders from both North and South confront what has now become the central issue of the new globalized world economy. Ever since the Asian crisis of 1997 threatened a chain-reaction of economic destabilization, governments, the IMF, even the G7, and even George Soros, have concluded that something needs to be done. This volume examines the range of different ideas and approaches they have come up with.

The book covers a gamut of important areas that concern economists and have the potential to shape economic thinking in Bangladesh.

Bertrand Russell once wrote in The Modern World, economics and war are the main motives for social cohesion. War now has taken an overwhelming role in the present day world. Economics of simple profit making‚and‚ rent seeking‚ has also not made our lives more decent and peaceful. Therefore, what we need is economic actions mediated by moral values and ethical considerations to make this world more cohesive and peaceful.

A majority of the rural poor must find their subsistence in the labour market. Understanding the dynamics of the labour market and what interventions are best made in terms of rural employment policies is of vital concern to students and practitioners of development alike. Professor Krishna Bharadwaj, internationally noted economist from Jawaharlal Nehru University, India, brings rare abilities of scholarship and insights to bear on the issue in a set of lectures she delivered at the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies within its Daniel Thorner Memorial Lecture Programme.

This important book provides a cogent critique of the nature of Southeast Asian capitalism. It argues powerfully that the crises are due not to excessive regulation, but to too much financial liberalisation and a consequent undermining of monetary and fiscal governance. While recognising some macroeconomic problems and abuses of state intervention in the region, the book also highlights the nature and implications of IMF and domestic policy responses which exacerbated the crises.

During the last two decades some parts of West Bengal and Bangladesh have had an unprecedented growth in agriculture due to the expansion of irrigation facilities and an extensive use of high yielding variety seeds, fertilisers and pesticides. These areas are known as the ‘green revolution’ belts of Bengal. The introduction of new technology and enterprising skills of farmers have helped agricultural growth in Bengal but the fruits of this development have not reached the poor in Bangladesh as they have in West Bengal.
