This book assesses feasible financing strategies for policymakers to follow in pursuance of human development, taking as reference the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and their achievement by 2015. The contributors to this book analyse these strategies in the context of broader concerns of economic development, with special reference to nine countries from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. They look at how macroeconomic policies might more effectively support sustained growth while reducing poverty, inequality and other human development gaps in low and middle-income countries, especially in times of global economic crises or external shocks'
