Controversies Over Development Current Development Debates Key Disagreements over economic development 1. The Role of Aid A. One key to path to economic development 2. The role of globalization. A. Another plausible road to development 3. Current policy options to respond to these questions. Easterly - Was development aid a waste of time? • Argues that economists and institutions have been trying to fix aid for decades without success. • If something doesn't work - try to add something new... ◦ Old style focus on big projects. ◦ Newer focus on Washington Consensus. ◦ Newer still focus on 'governance' issues. Easterly's Skepticism • Basic Claims ◦ We don't know why some countries grow, while other countries don't despite decades of speculation. ◦ Economists as experts - not so much. ◦ Aid may worsen democracy, bureaucratic quality rule of law and corruption. ‣ Provides problematic incentives for government and other actors ‣ Aid economy. ◦ No accountability or feedback from the poor Possible Policy Lessons • Move away from current cumulative approach (keep old wisdom but try to fix by adding something new). • Refrain from efforts to micromanage institutions and transform societies • Instead focus on very basic benefits that everyone might agree on. • Enable experimentalism. Rodrik - Problems of Globalization • Debates on globalization have suggested there an obvious path to economic development. • Globalization = economic openness. ◦ Benefits of free trade. ◦ Benefits of capital mobility. ◦ Benefits of limited role for government. ◦ Benefits of greater intellectual exchange. • Globalization should leave states better off. Second Generation Argument • It becomes clear the globalization is not unalloyed benefit for everyone. ◦ Distributional questions. ◦ Groups that are hurt in advanced industrialized democracies. ◦ Groups that are hurt in developing world. • All lead substantial political opposition to globalization (much of it centered in the developed world) New Approach to Globalization • New problems recognize these political problems. ◦ Advocate paying off of the groups that are hurt. ◦ Social safety net. ◦ Higher standards • Would potentially create new political coalitions • Allow globalization and open markets to continue to everyones benefit • Sweden Model Rodrik's Rejoinder • Benefits of increased openness are limited. ◦ Mexico or El salvador vs Vietnam • We have probably gotten most of the benefits that we could get without politically impossible reforms. ◦ Deep Globalization - harmonization of regulation. ◦ Substantial immigration reform.
