Short Description The inter-relations between adjustment, poverty and growth have been studied vigorously by the IMF and World Bank. Now the main issue is how the poor can be protected during period of adjustment. Experience of the 1980s showed that the World Bank-IMF package provided mixed results, with only a minority of the LDCs showing reasonable growth of exports. The symmetry of adjustment now suggest turning around the balance of resource flows again towards the LDCs both for the medium-and long- term credits.
In the absence of adequate capital flows, investment levels may prove insufficient to sustain a growth rate that could absorb the growing labour force: this has happened during the last five years in most of the debtor countries.
This volume brings together recent studies relating to the following elements of adjustment and liberalization in the third world:
1. Development Policy and Structural adjustment
2. World Recession and International Imbalances
3. Adjustment and International Imbalances
4. Policies for Reform
5. The US,Britain and Japan
6. Debt Equity Swaps
7. Debt Burden and Exchange Rate
8. Base for a New Approach
9. International Policies for Adjustment.
