About the product

This publication examines the common concerns of developing countries seeking just and fair growth and at the same time highlights their special regional needs. It addresses the following topics: the role of the state in promoting growth in the global market; the part played by national development strategies in resource redistribution and poverty reduction; the impact of globalization on the development paths taken by developing countries, and the attempt made by democracies to reconcile economic growth with distribution. In considering these issues the publication advances the proposition that well organized states that systematically incorporate popular concerns will continue to be fundamental to the pursuit of just growth in the twenty-first century.
