Economic Integration and Third World Development

By Pradip K. Ghosh; Gamani Corea | Go to book overview

in other forms of co-operation among developing countries, thereby leading perhaps to more realistic action aimed at ensuring the viability of the co-operation machinery that is clearly essential in the economic and political circumstances of the modern world.

This volume examines the experience of a substantial number of the third world countries in implementing development plans during approximately the 1970's and draws some general conslusions for policy action during the years ahead.

Attention has been focussed on some of the major problems faced by hard core developing countries and policy issues posed by those problems. However, the development needs of hard-core developing countries are very large and call for much greater interest and attention from world community than has been the case for. A systematic attack on the acute problems of countries facing extreme poverty and underdevelopment should therefore now be at the center of the policies designed to usher in a new international economic order.

It is hoped that this resource book will be of use not only to those directly involved in the formulation and implementation of development policies but also will help to acquaint a wide reading audience with the thrusts planned by developing countries for accelerated progress. In addition, the intercountry comparative analysis may be of use to planners and policy makers in developing countries, especially from the viewpoint of harmonizing national plans in order to strengthen economic co-operation with respect to economic integration among interested countries.

The plan of the reading materials in Part I of the book and the selection of the twelve pieces represents a specific orientation, or bias. They present current international issues and trends affecting economic integration in third world development, analytical methods, strategies and policies for development and selected third world country studies.

Part II includes statistical information and a descriptive bibliography of information sources related to economic integration and development in the third world countries.

Part III is a select bibliography of books, documents and periodical articles published since 1970, relevant to the role of economic integration in the development of the developing countries. Annotations for the different titles have been compiled from The Journal of Economic Literature, International Social Sciences Index, U.N. Documents Index, World Bank Publications, Finance and Development, Book Publisher's promotion brochures and the IMF-IBRD Joint Library Publications.

Part IV consists of a directory of information sources. This section is in parts, directory of United Nations information sources, listing of bibliographic sources, titles of selected periodicals published around the world and a directory of institutions involved in research relevant to economic integration problems in the third world countries.
