Stability with Growth by Joseph Stiglitz
Book DescriptionThere is growing dissatisfaction with the economic policies advocated by the IMF and other international financial institutions - policies that have often resulted in stagnating growth, crises, and recessions for client countries. This book presents an alternative to "Washington Consensus" neo-liberal economic policies by showing that both macro-economic and liberalization policy must be sensitive to the particular circumstances of developing countries. One-size-fits-all policy prescriptions are likely to fail given the vast differences between countries. This book discusses how alternative approaches to economic policy can better serve developing countries both in ordinary times and in times of crisis.

Books By Author Joseph Stiglitz
Euro, Hardback (August 2016)
Can the euro be saved? Laying bare the European Central Bank's misguided inflation-only mandate and explaining why austerity has condemned Europe to unending stagnation, the author outlines the fundamental reforms necessary to the structure of the eurozone and the policies imposed on the member countries suffering the most.
Great Divide, Paperback (April 2016)
Why has inequality increased in the Western world - and what can we do about it? This title argues that inequality is a choice - the cumulative result of unjust policies and misguided priorities. It exposes the inequality that is afflicting America and other Western countries in thrall to neoliberalism.
Price of Inequality, Paperback (April 2013)
Explains why we are experiencing destructively high levels of inequality - and why this is not inevitable. This book focuses chiefly on the gross inequality to which these systems give rise, but also explains how inextricably interlinked they are.
Freefall, Paperback (October 2010)» View all books by Joseph Stiglitz
When world economy went into freefall, so too did our unquestioning faith in markets. But what happens now? Are bailouts and stern lectures enough, or do we need a rethink of our entire financial system? This book shows why far radical reforms are needed to avoid future crises, and how we now have opportunity to create a new global economic order.
