Book Description

With this book, John Marangos offers an insightful historical and theoretical review of the Washington Consensus and its successors among the mainstream. Following an intuitive structure, it explores international development and the Washington Consensus through the lenses of neoclassical economics, Post-Keynesian economics, Institutional economics and Marxist economics. Ultimately, it provides a compelling alternative perspective to the dominant neoclassical development paradigm, and enables readers to identify the inter-connections, inter-relationships and inter-contradictions between different frameworks and policies.

It will be valuable supplementary reading for students, researchers and policymakers in international development, development economics, heterodox economics and the history of economic thought.
