Reclaiming Development: An Alternative Economic Policy Manual

January 01, 2014

There is no alternative to neoliberal economics – or so it appeared when Reclaiming Development was first published in 2004. Many of the same driving assumptions – monetarism and globalization – remain within the international development policy establishment. Ha-Joon Chang and Ilene Grabel confront this neoliberal development model head-on by combining devastating economic critique with an array of innovative policies and an in-depth analysis of the experiences of leading Western and East Asian economies. Reclaiming Development will appeal to students interested in development policy as well as professional economists, writes Chandni Singh.
