Introduction: the Political Crisis of Economic Adjustment. Developing Countries-Politics And Government.

Introduction: the Political Crisis of Economic Adjustment. This book addresses the question of how the political capacity of the government of a developing country affects its ability to implement structural adjustments in its economy in response to external pressures. Specifically, it addresses the question of how a government's political capacity influences the choice of adjustment policies and the implementation of those choices.

Why have so many attempts by developing countries to correct their financial insolvency by economic adjustment failed even when those nations have adhered closely to the orthodox economic prescriptions dispensed by the International Monetary Fund? . Drawing on examples and evidence from around the world, Snider demonstrates that the state must first improve its institutional credibility in the form of secure property rights and reliable contract enforcement. Only then will it be able to increase its extraction while holding down transaction costs at the level necessary for economic adjustment to succeed.

The issue of political stability, socio-political circumstances in host developing countries and the social, political and economic transitory nature of countries in transition are vital aspects for creating an investor-friendly atmosphere in those developing countries. This paper models an economy of farmers, bandits and soldiers. In addition to the economic factors affecting the economy studied by Saeed and Pavlov (2008), we examine also the effects of two psychological factors broadly categorized as exposure to violence and group identity.

When it is used to refer to the latter, it usually focuses on political economy and economics, although it may also draw on a few other distinct academic schools, notably political science, also sociology, history, and cultural studies

Why have so many attempts by developing countries to correct their financial insolvency by economic adjustment failed even when those nations have adhered closely to the “orthodox” economic prescriptions dispensed by the International Monetary Fund? Does the fault lie in policies that are poorly conceived or implemented haphazardly or on too much government intervention in the economy?In this fascinating book, Lewis Snider convincingly argues the opposite—that problems arise not because the government is involved but because the way it intervenes is often counterproductive. In addition, he contends that political weakness, rather than misconceived policies or the inability of policymakers to see the consequences of their decisions, most often prevents leaders from successfully implementing economic reforms.Snider's analysis focuses on three problems common to poor countries: an inability to extract sufficient resources from society; a lack of credible political and economic institutions; and as a natural outcome of these two, covert income and profit transfers that in turn serve to reinforce the institutional credibility problem.How can this vicious circle be broken? Drawing on examples and evidence from around the world, Snider demonstrates that the state must first improve its institutional credibility in the form of secure property rights and reliable contract enforcement. Only then will it be able to increase its extraction while holding down transaction costs at the level necessary for economic adjustment to succeed.
