Adjusting to Global Economic Volatility

The Case of South Asia

Mustafa K. Mujeri‚ Wahiduddin Mahmud (Eds.)

In association with South Asia Network of Economic Research Institutes

About the Book

<p>In South Asia, the impact of global economic vulnerability has been felt mainly through finance, trade and investment channels affecting the performance of the real economy. The slowdown in growth of exports and remittances, and other associated changes in the domestic economies have resulted in lower growth. This has also had social implications through changes in household income, intra-household decisions and resource allocations creating adverse impact on food security, nutrition, education, health care as well as poverty dynamics and its intergenerational transmission.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Adjusting to Global Economic Volatility: The Case of South Asia</em> attempts to answer three questions: a) How has South Asia been coping with the impacts of global economic vulnerability? b) What has determined the differential impact of various sectors to global economic and financial crisis? c) What demand- and supply-side bottlenecks need to be eased to meet the challenges of global vulnerability and how regional cooperation can help the countries going forward?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Meeting the global volatility challenges calls for a reform agenda that cuts across both domestic economies as well as the framework for regional cooperation. It must also be recognised that regional cooperation is not easy, and implementation of required actions is frequently weak in South Asian countries having diverse backgrounds. Furthermore, effective regional cooperation and integration takes time to develop and requires incremental, gradual and flexible implementation with visible payoffs. Successful cooperation requires leadership. Development of regional resources can be one of the important areas to make progress, which creates opportunities for win-win outcomes and equitable sharing of benefits among all partners.</p>

Praise for this book

“An interesting and informative collection of essays on South Asian economies by a range of contributors with high academic reputation, the volume contains interesting analysis and excellent material on a variety of subjects from financial crisis to overseas workers’ remittances, from climate change to trade in health care services. The book has relevance much beyond South Asia for countries at a similar stage of development and is warmly recommended to anyone interested in development problems and policies.”
