9780761935360: Development Under Stress: Sri Lankan Economy in Transition

This book examines various impediments faced in the development process and implementation of reforms in Sri Lanka, particularly after economic liberalization in 1977. The author maintains that it is a case of development under stress where the outcome has been far below the country's potential. The book describes key features of the Sri Lankan socio-political and economic system that prevented the country from achieving higher levels of economic growth. It explains why it could not match the economic achievements of South Korea and Malaysia-countries that had similar per capita income levels to that of Sri Lanka in the 1950s. The book is divided into five parts. The first part examines 50 years of economic development and the challenges ahead; the second discusses the economic liberalization debate; the third part looks at macroeconomic management during difficult times; the fourth looks at sectoral issues with reference to industry and agriculture; and the final part examines employment and poverty.

Recensione:

"This volume is a good contribution to the scanty literature on Sri Lanka's economy and will be a useful addition to economic development and South Asian collections." (J.S. Uppal 2007-05-31)

This book provides an insight into the political economy of Sri Lanka for not attaining the desired performance in spite of early liberalization and a better economic base to start with after its independence in 1948…The book is written in the form of a commentary, describing the political economy of Sri Lanka and its impact…full of interesting information about Sri Lanka.

(South Asia Economic Journal)

Development under Stress is an important contribution to understanding Sri Lanka’s economic development experience.
