"Rethinking Development Strategies after the Financial Crisis"

On May 24th IIMA attended a conference at the Un Library called «  Rethinking Development strategies after the financial crisis », an event organized in collaboration with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
The event, has been an opportunity to launch two books published by Unctad, called ‘Making the case for Policy Space’ and ‘Country Studies and International Comparisons’, which represent a sort of recipe to rethink the development strategies after the economic and financial crisis.
During the conference two important facts came out :  the need to find a new type of economic policies that are different in respect of the situation of each country and the need not to leave an economy to the market forces but to create new macroeconomic and sectoral policies that aim to solve the specif problem.
Finally the experience of Asia and of other developng countries teach us that,  it would be better that the international organizations like World Bank or International Monetary Fund, create a development-friendly governance, according to the specific needs of the country and not on the base of the interest of rich western countries.
