Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a welcome contribution to the on-going debate about the state of the global economy; what underlies its resilience and the potential challenges it continually faces based on the lessons of the recent global financial and economic crisis. It is clear from the well selected essays in the book that development as a discourse is undergoing a sea change; if at some point we thought ideology had succumbed to market fundamentalism, we need to re-search our minds. There is clearly a state of flux in development thinking. Birdsall and Fukuyama have helped us to recast our thinking and begin a fresh journey of exploration on the dynamics of development in a changed world.
