The relationship between trade and structural adjustment has many dimensions. Though restrictive trade measures can be a barrier to adjustment, liberal trade policies and trade capacity building can be an integral part of a successful adjustment process.  Adjustment refers to the use of a range of policy instruments – including an enabling macroeconomic environment and efficient labour markets – to facilitate adaptation to a structural (rather than transitory or cyclical) change in the economic environment. Structural adjustment requires a dynamic analysis of prevailing economic circumsta

"Many articles have been written about the causes of financial crises in emerging markets... ...Much less attention has been devoted to the effectiveness of alternative policy responses and the ensuing process of recovery of the real economy..."This paper analyzes the adjustment process in the aftermath of speculative attacks in six countries: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, Korea, and Thailand. As implied by the title, the main question to be addressed is whether the tales of adjustment in these Latin American and Asian economies were similar. This comparison is interesting for several

African Voices on Structural Adjustment presents 14 in-depth studies on the history and future of structural adjustment in Africa. Each study appraises the performance of structural adjustment policies (SAPs) with respect to a particular sector or issue. Each evaluates the compatibility of SAPs with the requirements for long-term development in Africa. And, most importantly, each presents a truly African perspective.

Annotation The debt crisis of the early 1980s and the resulting economic collapse led many developing countries to undertake structural adjustment programs.

Paradoxically, this investment response often hinges on whether adjustment is perceived as permanent and whether the reforms are expected to generate growth. This volume explores the impact of adjustment and reform on capital formation and economic growth, drawing on both econ
