✏Uneven Zimbabwe Book Summary : Uneven Zimbabwe examines the influence of domestic and international financial markets and financiers in uneven development in Zimbabwe, using - and contributing to - the tools of radical political economy. Theoretically, Bond begins with criticism of the classical Marxist concepts of "finance capital" for focusing on institutional characteristics and failing to grasp underlying dynamics. Instead, as economic crisis tendencies emerge, the power of finance periodically intensifies, temporarily displacing crisis through time and space and across geographical scales. But the limits of the financial solution become evident when paper assets delink from the productive assets they are meant to represent, as well as in the role that finance plays in amplifying uneven development across different economic sectors, spaces and scales.

✏Global Finance and Development Book Summary : The question of money, how to provide it, and how to acquire it where needed is axiomatic to development. The realities of global poverty and the inequalities between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’ are clear and well documented, and the gaps between world’s richest and the world’s poorest are ever-increasing. But, even though funding development is assumed to be key, the relationship between finance and development is contested and complex. This book explores the variety of relationships between finance and development, offering a broad and critical understanding of these connections and perspectives. It breaks finance down into its various aspects, with separate chapters on aid, debt, equity, microfinance and remittances. Throughout the text, finance is presented as a double-edged sword: while it is a vital tool towards poverty reduction, helping to fund development, more critical approaches remind us of the ways in which finance can hinder development. It contains a range of case studies throughout to illustrate finance in practice, including, UK aid to India, debt in Zambia, Apple’s investment in China, microfinance in Mexico, government bond issues in Chile, and financial crisis in East Asia. The text develops and explores a number of themes throughout, such as the relationship between public and private sources of finance and debates about direct funding versus the allocation of credit through commercial financial markets. The book also explores finance and development interactions at various levels, from the global structure of finance through to local and everyday practices. Global Finance and Development offers a critical understanding of the nature of finance and development. This book encourages the reader to see financial processes as embedded within the broader structure of social relationships. Finance is defined and demonstrated to be money and credit, but also, crucially, the social relationships and institutions that enable the creation and distribution of credit and the consequences thereof. This valuable text is essential reading for all those concerned with poverty, inequality and development.

✏Finance and Development Book Summary : Progress towards economic and monetary union in Western Europe has highlighted the importance of regional policies, while events in Eastern Europe have focused attention on the role of finance in development and may lead to a substantial diversion of capital flows. This volume from the Centre for Economic Policy Research addresses the relationships between growth, convergence, and capital market imperfections. Theoretical papers shed light on the debates over the role of financial structure in economic development and the scope for government intervention to promote regional development. Highly topical empirical papers examine the relationship between international lending and economic development in a historical perspective; the experience of regional policies in the European Community, and of financial liberalization in high-growth East Asian economies; and the development of financial markets in Eastern Europe.

✏Investment Finance in Economic Development Book Summary : As a result of the liberalization of the 1980s, the financial system has acquired a prominent role in developing economies. It is now conventional wisdom that `financial liberalization' is the means to stimulate economic development. Investment Finance in Economic Development challenges this assumption and offers an alternative view. The book presents a post-Keynesian approach to the role of banks, financial markets and savings in economic development. It departs from the conventional belief that financial institutions are mere intermediaries between savers and investors, to show that banks have a key, active role in the process of investment finance and growth. Further, financial markets, as the loci of allocation of financial savings, are shown to have an important role in supporting financial stability during the process of growth.

✏Finance development and structural change Book Summary : Since the contributions address some of the key issues of finance, development and structural change, the book deserves to be read not only by academics, but also by policymakers. Mojmir Mrak, Development and International Cooperation I highly recommend this volume. In addition to providing an excellent account of existing knowledge, it is highly suggestive of a wide range of possible future research projects. The style is such that the papers would be accessible to advanced undergraduates, but economists with varying degrees of involvement in the area would benefit in different ways from the rich array of material on offer. Sheila C. Dow, Review of Political Economy This important book applies a post-Keynesian perspective to the financial problems of economic development, restructuring in Eastern Europe, and the creation of a single market in the European Union. Distinguished authors have prepared important new papers which take existing institutions into account, reaffirm the causal priority of investment over saving and the distinction between finance and funding, focus on the macroeconomic repercussions of the finance of growth and structural change, and reassert Keynes s concern for symmetry in balance of payments adjustment. The essays on development provide a full critique of financial liberalization and explore alternatives, concentrating on the underdevelopment of funding opportunities rather than the lack of finance. The suitability of the AngloSaxon model of finance and funding for Eastern Europe is also questioned. The final section discusses structural imbalances in Western Europe and the strain they put on the creation of the Single Market. Written by leading specialists in their respective fields of research, these innovative new papers illustrate the vitality of the post-Keynesian tradition and will be required reading for all economists wishing to understand the role of finance in shaping development and change.
