    Reducing Poverty in Asia

    Edited by Christopher M. Edmonds

  15. The End of Marriage?

    The End of Marriage?

    Jane Lewis
    The modern day sees fewer marriages than before, and cohabitation is a major driver of family change. Jane Lewis questions whether this is – as many commentators argue and fear – a sign of ever-increasing individualism. Just as the order in which sex, marriage, cohabitation and childbirth occur can no longer be assumed, nor can the pattern of contributions that men and women make to the household. The End of Marriage? explores both the way in which the old rules have been eroded and what happens as a result. While there may certainly be something of a vacuum, Jane Lewis suggests that in some quarters at least this is being filled by increased negotiation at the household level. This questions the idea that individualism is necessarily selfish and destructive, which in turn raises issues regarding the regulation of the family, an increasingly delicate task for policymakers.

  20. Open-Economy Macroeconomics for Developing Countries

    Open-Economy Macroeconomics for Developing Countries

    Akhand A. Hossain, Anis Chowdhury
    Open-Economy Macroeconomics for Developing Countries focuses on fiscal, monetary and exchange rate issues of importance to less developed economies. The book argues that the dichotomy between the short-term macroeconomic stabilization goal and the long-term economic growth objective commonly found in developing countries’ policy framework is inappropriate. The authors report empirical evidence to support the proposition that macroeconomic stability is a pre-requisite for sustained economic growth and the root of macroeconomic instability in developing countries lies in the government budget deficits.
