Development and Globalisation: Daring to Think Differently

Development and Globalisation: Daring to Think Differently




   

Development is self-defined. It is primarily the responsibility of the South to develop itself; the North does not owe it to the South to develop it, nor should the South expect it. Development is about building confidence between governments and people, and not building confidence with the banks and global financial institutions such as the World Bank and the IMF, which is what globalisation has been for over the last three decades.

This book challenges the misdirected policies of the last 30 years. It offers alternative concepts and paradigms of development for policy makers and peoples' movements on wide-ranging issues. It invites readers to 'dare to think differently'.

'These essays promise to stand the test of time'
Benjamin W. Mkapa, president of Tanzania 1995–2005

'The essays are essential reading for those who believe that "another world is possible"'
Philip Ngunjiri, The East African

'Tandon's perspectives on global issues are indeed incisive'
Desmond Davies, African Prospects
