Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: World Bank e-Library: ; World Development Report: Publisher: Washington, D.C. : The World Bank, 1983Description: 1 online resource (214 p.).ISBN: 0195204328.Subject(s): Country Strategy and Performance | Currencies and Exchange Rates | Debt Markets | Economic Theory and Research | Emerging Markets | Finance and Financial Sector Development | Macroeconomics and Economic Growth | Private Sector DevelopmentOnline resources: home Abstract: This report is the sixth in an annual series assessing development issues. It reviews recent trends in the international economy and their implications for the developing countries with a special focus on the management and institutional aspects of development. The early recovery in the world economy foreseen in last year's World Development Report did not materialize. The recession has lasted longer than expected and has set back global development more decisively than at any time since the Great Depression. The indications of an upturn are now firmer, but the international financial system remains severely strained and protectionism continues to be an ominous threat. This report reviews how alternative policies may affect the future prospects for recovery. It concludes that the present financial crisis is manageable, provided concerted efforts are made both nationally and internationally. It is essential for the industrial countries to maintain the momentum of their recovery, to promote freer trade, and to ensure growth in capital flows. Equally important, developing countries must for their part continue their efforts to adjust their economies to the new external circumstances and thereby regain the confidence of their creditors.
