The Kyoto Post-COVID Manifesto For Global Economics: Confronting Our Shattered Society

The Kyoto Post-COVID Manifesto For Global Economics: Confronting Our Shattered Society by Stephen Hill
English | PDF | 2022 | 367 Pages | ISBN : 9811685657 | 5.7 MB

This book, The Kyoto Post-COVID Manifesto for Global Economics (KM-PC), is a sequel to our 2018 book, The Kyoto Manifesto for Global Economics (KM-I, 2018). It further exposes the failures of a global economic regime that, based on self-interest, has led to the enormously unequal and fragmented society of today and our decreased ability to respond and recover from the critical worldwide consequences of such a regime over time — notably, climate change. At stake is our very survival beyond the twenty-first century.

Development Policy: An Introduction to Objectives and Results

Development Policy: An Introduction to Objectives and Results by Joachim Betz
English | EPUB | 2022 | 213 Pages | ISBN : 3658350105 | 11.4 MB

Developing countries have made rapid but highly varied progress since the 1990s. So much so that the boundaries to the traditional industrialized countries have become partially blurred. On the other hand, there are a number of mostly fragile states that have not succeeded in doing so, or have only rudimentarily succeeded. Talk of one "Third World" and common development problems thus explains little. Instead, development has become a requirement for all states, which this textbook breaks down and assesses according to key development goals.
