This title was first published in 2003. Emerging Market Economies: Globalization and Development is the result of a comprehensive international research project co-ordinated within the TIGER (Transformation, Integration and Globalization Economic Research). It deals with economic, social and political implications of globalization for the development of emerging market economies and is authored by a host of international scholars from the USA, Chile, Tanzania, UK/Italy, Hungary, Poland, Romania, China and Japan. Kolodko et al examine the fundamental issues of the influences of globalization on the markets for capital, goods and labour and for the growth and development in emerging markets including post-communist countries. The study includes a number of comprehensive and compatible works which deal especially with the chances for and mechanism of catching-up on these emerging markets.

'With this book we now have a clear map through the maze of complex issues facing today's emerging economies, the result of an international research effort led by Grzegorz Kolodko, who brings to the debate not only innovative economic analysis but also his own deep experience as a policymaker in one of Europe's most successful emerging economies.' Dr Tony Addison, World Institute for Development Economics Research, Finland 'This volume steers a middle course between the diehard opponents of globalization on the one hand, and its apologists on the other...This balanced perspective is much needed as the world struggles with the newly unleashed forces of technology, trade and capital flows.'
