The Economy of Bangladesh PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Economy of Bangladesh free pdf Khan analyzes the performance of the Bangladesh economy during the last quarter century, the period since its emergence from military rule and integration into the global economy. Its performance in growth, demographic transition, sharp reduction in aid dependence and improved social indicators has surprised the development community. In contrast to these successes, the development of the country has been characterized by major blemishes, notably rapidly increasing inequality, inadequate infrastructure, environmental degradation and an uneasy system of governance and democratic institutions. This book identifies the factors behind the considerable success and continuing blemishes of Bangladesh's development experience. While the development community was bemused by Bangladesh's unexpected success in attaining high growth, and remarkable improvement in infant and child mortality, life expectancy, primary school enrolment and the status of women, it needs to be aware of the looming dangers to its ability to sustain and improve upon its past performance.
