Vistaar Publications, New Delhi, India, 2002, 8178291711 / 9788178291710, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Micro-finance has emerged in recent years as a major tool for development and is fast growing as an international industry. This book explores how developmental goals and action can be put back into micro-finance. It sets out how micro-finance can be designed, in practice, to contribute to a wide range of developmental objectives, including social and economic security for poor people, promoting livelihoods, building democratic people`s organisations, empowering women, and changing wider systems or institutions within society. It provides a detailed discussion on the fast expanding movement of savings and credit or `self-help` groups in India, and presents a comparison of these groups with those promoted by the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, reviewing the differences in their sustainability, outreach and impact on poor people.

6 From Asian to Global Financial Crisis: An Asian Regulator's View of Unfettered Finance in the 1900s and 2000s

Andrew Sheng

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2010, 052116821X / 9780521168212, First Edition, Paperback, New, 150 x 230 Mm 
This is a unique insider account of the new world of unfettered finance. The author, an Asian regulator, examines how old mindsets, market fundamentalism, loose monetary policy, carry trade, lax supervision, greed, cronyism, and financial engineering caused both the Asian crisis of the late 1990s and the global crisis of 2008?009. This book shows how the Japanese zero interest rate policy to fight deflation helped create the carry trade that generated bubbles in Asia whose effects brought Asian economies down. The study’s main purpose is to demonstrate that global finance is so interlinked and interactive that our current tools and institutional structure to deal with critical episodes are completely outdated. The book explains how current financial policies and regulation failed to deal with a global bubble and makes recommendations on what must change. Contents Introduction 1. Things fall apart 2. Japan and the Asian crisis 3. The beam in our eyes 4. Banking: the weakest link 5. Washington consensus and the IMF 6. Thailand: the karma of globalization 7. South Korea: strong body, weak heart 8.

7 Growth and Development in Emerging Market Economies: International Private Capital Flows, Financial Markets and Globalization

Harinder S. Kohli (ed.)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0761936718 / 9780761936718, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This compilation helps understand the basic forces that are now determining the performance and prospects of emerging market economies (EMEs) around the world. In the past few years, there has been a sharp rise in private capital flows to well performing developing countries, commonly referred to as EMEs. With a drop in net transfers from official sources, the private capital flows in these countries now dwarf official flows. Growth and Development in Emerging Market Economies: International Private Capital Flows, Financial Markets and Globalization encapsulates in one volume the understanding of the inter-related topics of global imbalances, finance, investment, trade, and infrastructure. Such assemblage is difficult to find in the existing literature in this field. Many chapters discuss the situations in Asia and Latin America, drawing parallels and pointing out contrasts. The papers in this collection were discussed at the Emerging Markets Forum meeting held in Jakarta, Indonesia in September 2006. The contributors include highly experienced former policy makers and senior officials of multilateral institutions who have lifelong experience in policy formulation at the highest level. The collection would be of value to policy makers in developing countries, officials of multilateral development institutions and researchers and academicians in the field of EMEs.

11 Interest Rates and Coupon Bonds in Quantum Finance

Belal E. Baaquie

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0521889286 / 9780521889285, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 180 x 255 Mm 
he economic crisis of 2008 has shown that the capital markets need new theoretical and mathematical concepts to describe and price financial instruments. Focusing on interest rates and coupon bonds, this book does not employ stochastic calculus ?the bedrock of the present day mathematical finance ?for any of the derivations. Instead, it analyzes interest rates and coupon bonds using quantum finance. The Heath-Jarrow-Morton and the Libor Market Model are generalized by realizing the forward and Libor interest rates as an imperfectly correlated quantum field. Theoretical models have been calibrated and tested using bond and interest rates market data. Building on the principles formulated in the author’s previous book (Quantum Finance, Cambridge University Press, 2004) this ground-breaking book brings together a diverse collection of theoretical and mathematical interest rate models. It will interest physicists and mathematicians researching in finance, and professionals working in the finance industry. Contents 1. Synopsis 2. Interest rates and coupon bonds 3. Options and option theory 4. Interest rate and coupon bond options 5. Quantum field theory of bond forward interest rates 6. Libor Market Model of interest rates 7. Empirical analysis of forward interest rates 8. Libor Market Model of interest rate options 9. Numeraires for bond forward interest rates 10. Empirical analysis of interest rate caps 11. Coupon bond European and Asian options 12. Empirical analysis of interest rate swaptions 13. Correlation of coupon bond options 14. Hedging interest rate options 15.

12 Micro-credit, Poverty and Empowerment: Linking the Triad

Neera Burra, Joy Deshmukh-Ranadive, and Ranjani K. Murthy (eds)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0761933662 / 9780761933663, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Two persistent problems that affect a significant portion of Indian women are poverty and violation of their human rights. In recent years, micro-credit has come to be viewed as a vital tool to ameliorate both conditions. However, there are few studies in the Indian context which test the validity of the assumption that there is a linear link between micro-credit, poverty reduction and women`s empowerment. This important and thought provoking volume brings together revealing case studies of micro-credit interventions made by six non-governmental and quasi-governmental bodies in five states of peninsular India, several of which have been supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The six case studies are diverse in terms of their socio-economic and geo-political contexts: the nature and ideological orientation of the intermediary organizations; the groups targeted by the projects (exclusively women or men and women); and the life-spans of the projects. Despite their differences, all the studies offer useful lessons on the institutional structures and processes that do or do not facilitate women`s empowerment and poverty reduction, while exploring the potential and limitations of micro-credit to achieve these twin goals.

19 State of Urban Services in India's Cities: Spending and Financing

Kala Seetharam Sridhar and A. Venugopala Reddy

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2010, 0198065388 / 9780198065388, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
With increasing population and expanding demand for urban infrastructure services, the capacities of local governments in many developing countries are overburdened. Adequate infrastructure is not only necessary for increasing productivity but also improving the quality of living. Given the primacy of public service delivery for cities to become engines of growth, this book answers two critical questions: Does low spending explain the state of poor public service delivery? How can urban local bodies have access to greater resources so as to enable them to improve public service delivery? Using case studies of four cities—Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, and Bangalore—the book examines urban services such as water supply, sewerage, sanitation, solid waste management, municipal roads, and street lighting. It compares the state of these services with international norms and suggests new ways in which they can be financed and improved. More specifically, the book examines the role of land as a revenue-generating source in India’s cities. 033658

20 States of the Indian Economy: Towards a Larger Constituency for Second Generation Economic Reforms

Amir Ullah Khan

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0761935916 / 9780761935919, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
India today occupies the centre stage in the global arena, and economists the world-over are bullish on india`s unprecedented economic growth in the last ten years and it growth prospects for the future. The large pool of human capital—a young, talented and well-educated workforce—is one of the major drivers of economic growth in the country. Rapid strides in knowledge-based industries, especially information technology, rejuvenation of the manufacturing sector, revolution in the agricultural sector and resurgence in exports have made India one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The opening up of the economy and growth in entrepreneurship has made India a sought-after destination for foreign investment. The authors argue that this situation is a result of first generation economic reforms, initiated primarily by the central government. For inclusive growth, the onus is on state governments to carry forward a second generation of reforms. In this context, the book examines: - The state of the Indian economy after one and a half decades of liberalisation and its role in the fast changing global economy; - the economic performance of various Indian states during this period; and - sectors that have done well and those that need substantial improvement in terms of adoption and implementation of reform measures.

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2010, 0198068840 / 9780198068846, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
South Asia is a land of sharp and growing contrasts. It has attracted global attention as an emerging economic powerhouse, but is also home to the largest concentration of people living in conflict, poverty, and malnutrition. With a focus on the poor half billion of South Asia, this volume puts into perspective the colossal task ahead to eradicate poverty and enable inclusive growth in the region. Examining the challenges, successes, and failures of South Asia, it provides fresh perspectives on the links between economic geography, institutions, and globalization. Through a comparative study of spatial disparities in income, poverty, conflict, human development, and gender divides, the essays provide answers to why certain regions are lagging. Combining quantitative data with analytical rigour, they provide innovative short- and long-term policy solutions to overcome the limits to growth and escape poverty traps. Printed Page: 795. 037525
