The inter-relations between adjustment, poverty and growth have been studied vigorously by the IMF and World Bank. Now the main issue is how the poor can be protected during periods of adjustment. Experience of the 1980's showed that the World Bank IMF Package provided mised results, with only a minority of the LDCs showing reasonable growth of exports. The symmetry of adjustment now suggests turning around the balance of resource flows again towards the LDCs both for the medium and long term credits.

In the adsence of adequate capital flows, investment levels may prove insufficient to sustain a growth rate that could absorb the growing labour force, this has happened during the last five years in most of the debtor countries.

This volume brings together recent studies relating to the following elements of adjustment and liberalization in the third word: 1. Development Policy and Structural Adjustment 2. World Recession and International Imbalances 3. Adjustment and interdependence 4. Policies for Reform 5. The US, Britain and Japan 6. Debt Equity Swaps 7. Dept Burden and Exchange Rate 8. Bases for a New Approach 9. International Policies for Adjustment.
