Book Description
Based on his experiences as director of the South Centre, the intergovernmental think tank for the South, Yash Tandon challenges what he describes as the misdirected aid and development policies of the last 30 years. He offers alternative concepts and paradigms of development for policy makers and peoples’ movements on wide-ranging issues. He challenges his readers to ‘dare to think differently’. According to Professor Tandon, development is self-defined. It is primarily the responsibility of the South to develop itself; the North does not have a duty to develop the South, nor should the South expect it. Development, he believes, is about building confidence between governments and their people. It is not about winning the confidence of banks and global financial institutions such as the World Bank and the IMF, which is what globalisation is all about. These essays reveal Tandon`s thinking on a cross-spectrum of issues including the reform of the Bretton Woods institutions; climate change and food security; industry, trade, innovation and intellectual property; the global financial crisis; ending aid dependence; and the Palestine-Israel question. They are essential reading for those who believe that `another world is possible`.
