ABOUT THE BOOK
Diversity in Development: Reconsidering the Washington Consensus explores what is right and what is wrong with the policies prescribed by the Washington Consensus. Contributing authors include professors of economics from Asia, Latin America, North America, Africa and Europe, former government ministers and central bankers, and high-level officials of the World Bank, WTO, IMF and United Nations. These leading experts on finance and development discuss their sometimes conflicting views in a refreshing and in-depth manner.
Diversity in Development: Reconsidering the Washington Consensus addresses the important question of what development strategies would work best today in Asia, Latin America and Africa, whether by following or avoiding the prescriptions of the Washington Consensus. It offers a rich diversity of visions on development and explores how financial stability could be enhanced at both the national and the international level.
