  4. The Economic Development of Southeast Asia

    The Economic Development of Southeast Asia

    Edited by Hal Hill
    This group of economies is of interest for a number of reasons. Firstly, they feature great diversity – Singapore has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, while several of the mainland Southeast Asian states are among the poorest. Brunei is a tiny oil sultanate, while Indonesia is the world’s fourth largest nation. In addition, several of these economies have been consistently among the world’s most open, while others are emerging from a long period of international commercial isolation. Thirdly, the group includes one sizeable country, the Philippines, which for reasons still only poorly understood has consistently under-performed compared to its potential. Four of the economies – Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand – grew extremely quickly in the three decades through to the recent Asian economic crisis. Lastly, the Asian economic crisis of 1997–98 particularly affected three of the countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The factors explaining this sudden, and largely unanticipated, event are still only poorly understood. Learn More

  6. Privatisation in Developing Countries

    Privatisation in Developing Countries

    Edited by Paul Cook, Colin Kirkpatrick
    In recent decades, privatisation has been a key policy instrument in the move to more market-based economic systems in all parts of the developing world. Privatisation, however, has not necessarily been accompanied by an increase in market competition. In recent years, many public utilities have been privatised as monopolies and in addition regulatory systems have been developed to restrict their market power and protect the interests of consumers.

    Edited by Gene M. Grossman
    This new two volume set contains major recent theoretical and empirical contributions to the debate on long-term economic growth. Research on long-term growth was revitalized in recent years as it became clear that countries were not converging in income levels as was predicted by the neoclassical growth model. Also differences in growth rates across countries seemed systematic and predictable. These findings led to the development of models of ‘endogenous growth’ through which a country’s long-run growth rate is determined by economic and policy variables. Learn More

    Edited by Deepak Lal
    This four volume work provides a comprehensive and authoritative selection of articles in development economics. The first two volumes cover issues concerning growth, agriculture and human resources. The third and fourth volumes cover industrialization, foreign trade and foreign capital, stabilisation policies and the emerging new area of political economy. Taken together they provide the basis for a comprehensive course on development economics at the third year undergraduate or first year graduate level. They show why development economics is a subject marked both by its obvious practical relevance as well as the many theoretical insights it has provided for other branches of economics. There are detailed introductions by the editor – a leading development economist with wide experience in both the practice and the teaching of the subject. Besides containing detailed bibliographies, these introductions place the readings in the volumes into a coherent context which is suitable to structure a one year course on the subject. As such it should be of interest to students, teachers and researchers. As policy concerns have been kept clearly in mind in the selections, the readings should also be of use to policymakers in governments and international organizations, for whom debates on development are likely to be a central concern.
