  3. Money, Banking and the Foreign Exchange Market in Emerging Economies

    Money, Banking and the Foreign Exchange Market in Emerging Economies

    Tarron Khemraj
    Despite the financial liberalization agenda of the mid-1980s, a system of bank oligopolies has developed in both large and small, open developing economies. Mainstream monetary theory tends to assume a capital markets structure and is therefore not well suited to an analysis of these economies. This book outlines a unique theoretical framework that can be used to examine monetary and exchange rate policies in developing economies or other economies in which banks dominate external finance.

  4. Intellectual Property for Economic Development

    Intellectual Property for Economic Development

    Edited by Sanghoon Ahn, Bronwyn H. Hall, Keun Lee
    Protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs) serves a dual role in economic development. While it promotes innovation by providing legal protection of inventions, it may retard catch-up and learning by restricting the diffusion of innovations. Does stronger IPR protection in a developing country encourage technology development in or technology transfer to that country? This book aims to address the issue, covering diverse forms of IPRs, diverse actors in innovation, and diverse cases from Asia and Latin America. Learn More

  10. The Dynamics of Economic Growth

    The Dynamics of Economic Growth

    Khuong Minh Vu
    The advancement of a nation from poverty to prosperity is not a technical process but a great transformation. At the center of this change are two driving forces – emotion, which is referred to as aspiration, anxiety, and sense of responsibility; and enlightenment, which is associated with the freedom from dogmatism, open-mindedness, and the hunger for learning. It is these two factors that have determined not only the remarkable success of Asia in economic development but also the uniqueness of its growth model. This book examines the rise of Asia in the past two decades and draws lessons from its growth patterns. Learn More

  11. Values, Payments and Institutions for Ecosystem Management

    Values, Payments and Institutions for Ecosystem Management

    Edited by Pushpam Kumar, Ibrahim Thiaw
    Using a selection of authoritative and original contributions, this timely book explores the uncertainty surrounding the impact of decisions undertaken to manage ecosystem services worldwide. Invariably, the policies designed and implemented to manage forests, wetlands, and marine and coastal environments often involve conflicts of interest between various stakeholders. This has added an additional layer of complexity in the context of developing countries where institutions and governance are weak or absent. Economic valuation and the subsequent design of innovative response tools such as payment for ecosystem services (PES) have the potential to offer far greater transparency. In the case of LDCs, the identification of suitable institutions for executing these tools is also of vital importance. Learn More

  16. China’s Economic Development

    China’s Economic Development

    Lu Ming, Zhao Chen, Yongqin Wang, Yan Zhang, Yuan Zhang, Changyuan Luo
    The authors identify three major factors in the growth of the Chinese economy: economic decentralization and political centralization; the urban–rural divide; and relational society. These are explored in depth via analyses of factors including urban and rural economic development and their political and social foundations, industrial agglomeration, transitions of public services and governmental responsibilities towards them and developmental imbalances and mechanisms. It is illustrated that whilst contemporary China has obviously made great economic strides, a wide variety of problems are accumulating over time. The book concludes that following three decades of high economic growth, China now faces great challenges for sustainable growth, and the institutions of China’s economy have reached a critical point. Strategies for dealing with these challenges and requirements for the successful future development of China are thus prescribed. Learn More
