Description - State, Markets, and Just Growth by Atul Kohli

This volume explores the common concerns of developing countries in the quest for just growth, while emphasizing their special regional needs. The opening chapters provide an overview of the shared imperatives of globalization, democracy, poverty, and inequality. The rest analyze the records of different regions and countries in achieving just growth. Each author addresses four specific issues: states, markets, and growth - how much should states intervene in the market in order to promote growth?; states, markets, and distribution - how much emphasis should development strategies put on deliberate redistribution and/or poverty alleviation?; globalization - how constrained, as a result of globalization, are developing countries when choosing their development paths?; and democracy - are democracies able to reconcile economic growth with distribution? The book advances the proposition that well-organized states that systematically incorporate popular concerns will continue to be fundamental to the pursuit of just growth in the new century.
