How getting the prices right helped the wrong people

Kaplinsky, Raphael (1991). How getting the prices right helped the wrong people. In: Colclough, Christopher and Manor, James eds. States or Markets? Neo-Liberalism and the Development Policy Debate. Ids Development Studies Series. Oxford, UK: Oxford University Press, pp. 148–172.



About the book: This volume examines the usefulness of neo-liberal theory and a prescription for tackling problems in such areas as agriculture, industry, education, and health, as well as its effectiveness in dealing with issues impacting the rural poor and women. The work goes on to assess the neo-liberal record on trade and financial and structural adjustment policies, and its lack of attention to political and strategic issues which tend to determine the ultimate viability of these or any other attempts at policy reform.
