This book discusses national development planning in the context of a globalized world economy. National economic development planning, the process of defining strategic economic objectives for a country and designing policies and institutional frameworks to attain them, was popular in many countries in the 1960s and 1970s. Over time it lost its appeal. More recently, with globalization accelerating and economic competition increasing, it is making a comeback in different countries under different forms. National planning in this new era is different than the earlier quantitative planning approaches. It employs different tools, such as strategic visions and action plans, revived forms of physical infrastructure planning, industrial policy, and cluster policy. Built on the research of international scholars with firsthand knowledge of the countries in question, this volume presents and evaluates current national planning strategies and policy worldwide. It will be of interest to both academicians who study and teach globalization and development as well as policy makers who may use it as a reference as they contemplate their own strategies.

In this comprehensive appraisal of Indian economic reforms, the author recounts how reforms were initiated and how they unfolded in stages since 1991. He analyzes all the components of the structural adjustment programme including in the agrarian, industrial, banking, public sector, fiscal reforms, trade, environmental and labour sectors. In keeping with his ideological and political convictions, the author questions the benefits of the reforms and argues that an uncritical acceptance of IMF/World Bank/WTO/ conditions has not served to benefit the majority of Indian society.

Traditionally, development has been rooted in ideologies and assumptions prevalent in the developed world and in practices and strategies adopted by leading industrial nations. However, historically, eclectic ideas and approaches often clash with existing long-established notions of progress and modes of realizing social and economic change. Managing Development in a Globalized World: Concepts, Processes, Institutions explores this topic by incorporating ideas and interpretations that have previously been neglected or given inadequate attention in the discourse on developing countries. It underscores development as a continuous process that must be supported by sound policies and efficient management, supplying a wider understanding of the field. The authors argue that the application of innovative development techniques and best practices is essential for obtaining optimum results in meeting the needs of society. They examine the style of managing development with a new perspective that links the phenomenon with changing demands and the interplay of internal/external actors and a host of stakeholders. An exploration of key sectors in development provides clear comprehension of problems and solutions. A careful synthesis of theoretical/conceptual and empirical literature, the book assesses real-world situations and provides insight into the operational dynamics of development policies, programs, and institutions. It focuses on goals, values, and dynamics of development management that are undergoing rapid changes and continue to be enhanced to alleviate poverty and improve living standards in an era of globalization and inter-regional and inter-institutional synergies. It highlights best practices essential for the efficient and effective delivery of human development services that are designed and put in place to obtain optimum results in meeting the needs of society.

'Modern State Intervention in the Era of Globalisation is a thoughtful and well-researched assessment of the evolving role of the state in the contemporary world economy. This work is provocative because it goes against the predominant arguments in favor of a minimal state, as commonly asserted by neoclassical economics. Instead, Karagiannis and Madjd-Sadjadi think "outside of the box" and produce both theoretical arguments and evidence from important cases such as the EU, Singapore and Hong Kong to support the idea of a viable and continuing role for the "Developmental State". the scholarship underlying this very readable book, which includes contemporary material as well as ancient economic thought, is truly impressive. Readers will be left with much to reconsider about the benefits of globalisation.' - Patrick James, University of Southern California, US
