Underdevelopment and unregulated markets: why free markets do not lead to catching-up

 

Abstract:
After World War II, only a few developing countries were able to catch up to the real GDP per capita levels prevailing in developed countries. These successful countries in almost all cases were in Asia and did not follow the free-market doctrine in the tradition of the Washington Consensus.
There must be theoretical explanations as to why underdevelopment is reproduced and most countries in the world do not catch up. This essay reviews different economic approaches that attempt to explain the lack of convergence. The aim is to explain why neither trade based on comparative advantages, nor on economies of scale, nor in global value chains, can cure the lack
of sufficient productivity development. The essay will also cover special features like negative terms-of-trade effects, abundance of scarce resources, and premature de-industrialisation. Also distorted financial systems, high inequality, and restrictions on macroeconomic demand management are briefly discussed. As most developing countries suffer from several of these factors, this approach can explain why development is only possible with the support of comprehensive regulatory government policies and a change in global governance.

Workshop New Challenges of Decentralisation

2019.05.09. - 2019.05.10.

Workshop New Challenges of Decentralisation

Decentralisation has been one of the buzzwords in the neoliberal good governance public policy literature in the last decades. After the main decentralisation trend in the western democracies, in the seventies, the developing and transition countries worldwide were advised to devolve most of the competences in public service delivery and in local economic development.

 

The main argument was the fact that the decentralised democratic, participative way of managing local affairs could improve both accessibility and quality of public services and provide at the same time more transparency and legitimacy. Many territorial reforms have been implemented under the umbrella of principle of subsidiarity and decentralisation, supported and sponsored by the EU (cohesion funds) and other international organisations (OECD, World Bank, UN), referring especially the regional competitiveness and the achievement of the Millennium Goals. Not only the financial crisis in 2008 but also many negative experiences and even failed reforms so far contributed to the scepticism concerning decentralisation and rescaling.

 

Thus, centralisation attempts emerged realizing that decentralisation has crucial preconditions and that for the overall governance, the political, economic, cultural-social and territorial contexts matter. The aim of the workshop is to discuss the experience of these recent territorial reforms. The workshop will include plenary and panel sessions. The organization plans to publish a selection of the papers presented.

 

Papers are especially welcome on the following topics or approaches:

 

· Longitudinal and/or international comparative analysis of territorial reforms, successes and failures;

· Explicit and hidden methods of centralisation;

· National case studies of how local and regional governments used or misused their competences at various policy fields;

· National patterns for consolidating the local- regional governments during the crisis;

· Theoretical papers on trends, advantages and disadvantages, legal and material preconditions of decentralisation.

 

Participation in the Workshop requires the presentation of a paper.

All proposals (abstracts) will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee.

Deadline for abstract submission: 15 January 2019.

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Deadline for abstract submission: 15 January 2019
  • Notification of acceptance: 30 January 2019
  • Registration period: 1-20 February 2019
  • Workshop: 9 - 10 May 2019
