Towards new developmentalism : market as means rather than master /

by Khan, Shahrukh Rafi (ed.) | Christiansen, Jens (ed.).

Publisher: London, U.K. Routledge 2011Description: xvii, 286 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index. "This book is the outcome of a conference held at Mount Holyoke College on 14-16 November 2008"--p. [xviii].Summary: The global financial and economic crisis starting in 2007 has provoked the exploration of alternatives to neo-liberalism. Although neo-liberalism has been critiqued from various perspectives, these critiques have not coalesced into a concrete alternative in development economics literature. The main objective of this book is to name and formulate this alternative, identify what is new about this viewpoint, and project it on to the academic landscape. This book includes contributions from many prominent development economists who are unified by a form of 'developmental pragmatism'. Their concern is with the problems of development that preoccupied the pioneers of economic development in the mid-twentieth century, known as the developmentalists. Like the developmentalists, the contributors to "Towards New Developmentalism" are policy-oriented and supportive of institutional development and engagement with economic globalization. This collection has an over-arching concern with promoting social justice, and holds the general view of the market as the means to affecting an alternative program of development rather than as a master whose dictates are to be obeyed without question. This important collection sets the agenda for new developmentalism, drawing on issues such as industrial policy, technology, competition, growth and poverty. In broad terms, the economic development debate is cast in terms of whether the market is the master, an ideological neo-liberal perspective, or the means to affect change as suggested by the pragmatic perspective that is being termed neo-developmentalism. This book will be valuable reading to postgraduates and researchers specialising in the area of development studies including within economics, international relations, political science and sociology. ; Contents: Exploring and naming an economic development alternative / Shahrukh Rafi Khan -- The market as means rather than master : the crisis of development and the future role of the state / Robert Wade -- Hamlet without the prince of Denmark : how development has disappeared from today's "development" discourse / Ha-Joon Chang -- The economics of failed, failing, and fragile states : productive structure as the missing link / Erik S.

Red flag : waking up to China's challenge / Peter Hartcher.

by Hartcher, Peter.

Publisher: [Carlton, Vic.] : Black Inc., 2019Description: 117 p.Other title: Waking up to China's challenge | QE 76 2019.Notes: Correspondence: 'MEN AT WORK' Grant Majoribanks, Maddison Connaughton, Angela Shanahan, Marian Baird, Andrew Wear, Mark Tennant, Andrew Thackrah, Annabel Crabb Summary: China has become a key nation for Australia's future - for our security, economy and identity. But what are China's intentions when it comes to Australia? In this gripping account, Peter Hartcher shows how Beijing stepped up its campaign for influence, over hearts and minds, mineral and agricultural resources, media outlets and sea lanes. Reactions so far have included panic, xenophobia and all-the-way-with-the-USA, but the challenge now is to think hard about the national interest and respond with wisdom to a changed world. This urgent, authoritative essay blends reporting and analysis in trademark Hartcher style, and covers the local scene as well as the larger geopolitical picture.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Falling Short : Australia's role in funding fairer climate action in a warming world / Sophie Hardefeldt, Melissa Bungcaras, David Tran et al.

by Hardefeldt, Sophie | Bungcaras, Melissa | Tran, David et al.

Publisher: [Melbourne, Vic.] : Oxfarm Australia, 2022Description: 39 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Report (Online Resource) Summary: Communities across the world are facing a climate emergency, and it is those least responsible for causing the crisis who are being hit hardest. Across the Pacific region, communities are grappling with the daily realities of a heating planet – more severe cyclones, rising food and water insecurity, and biodiversity loss – alongside the existential threat of rising sea levels. Growing climate impacts threaten the security of their islands, their economies and livelihoods, and their culture and community. Australia is also experiencing the devastating consequences of climate change. However, we have more resources to draw from to rebuild and recover. We have also contributed significantly towards causing the climate crisis, which means we have a moral duty to support low-income countries to respond to worsening climate impacts Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
