Finance & Development, June 1973
- Climate and Economic Development: Is the location of many developing countries in the tropics a cause of their poverty?
- The Snake in the Tunnel: Eventual monetary union in the EEC may involve reducing exchange rate fluctuations among the currencies of the nine member countries.
- Project Supervision: The World Bank’s interest in a development project does not stop when the necessary loan has been made—continual contact with the borrower helps ensure the success of the project.
- Assembly Industries in the Caribbean: With appropriate government incentives assembly industries can reduce unemployment and improve export performance.
- Integrated Regional Development: A heavy concentration of agricultural, educational, and infrastructure projects in one backward region can help to overcome a heritage of rural poverty and underemployment.
- Urban Needs of Developing Countries: Even the cheapest public housing is often too costly for the millions of urban poor in the LDCs. Providing minimum urban amenities in a “site and services” project can stimulate self-help housing construction.
- East-West Trade: The socialist countries of East Europe are increasingly interested in trade with both the West and the LDCs.
