This volume addresses a curiously neglected area of policy analysis??"the impact of rich countries?? policies on the global poor. Fourfifths of the world??s people subsist on onefifth of the world??s income. One-fifth live in abject poverty, on less than one dollar a day. The main responsibility for reducing poverty reduction naturally rests with developing countries. But globalization means that rich countries must also play their part. At current levels, aid alone cannot deliver adequate progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. A new development consensus is needed. The surveys by eminent development analysts and practitioners included in this volume sketch a road map for a better understanding of the mechanics of globalization and the improved design of development policies.
