9781565491700: Rural Progress, Rural Decay: Neoliberal Adjustment Policies and Local Initiatives

* Profiles Ecuador as a broadly applicable case study to explore grassroots development initiatives
* Stresses how macroeconomic conditions must change to achieve equitable development

How do rural development programs, especially those run by nongovernmental organizations, contend with the forces of structural adjustment programs and economic liberalization? Rural Progress, Rural Decay asserts that NGOs make little progress in promoting equitable development and "poor people’s entrepreneurship" in an economic and political environment dominated by big business.

The editors probe the adverse consequences of neoliberal macroeconomic policies on development in low-income countries. This illuminating study is a necessary read for those interested in local communities in Latin America and other parts of the developing world.
