24. Selected Readings 2015: Handbook on the Economics of Foreign Aid

 Selected readings 2015: Handbook on the Economics of Foreing Aid
Edited by Mak Arvin and Byron Lew, and published by Edward Elgar Publishing. Presentation: "It would be fair to say that foreign aid today is one of the most important factors in international relations and in the national economy of many countries – as well as one of the most researched fields in economics. Although much has been written on the subject of foreign aid, this book contributes by taking stock of knowledge in the field, with chapters summarizing long-standing debates as well as the latest advances. Several contributions provide new analytical insights or empirical evidence on different aspects of aid. As a whole, the book demonstrate how researchers have dealt with increasingly complex issues over time – both theoretical and empirical – on the allocation, impact, and efficacy of aid, with aid policies placed at the center of the discussion" (Presentation at the Publishers Website).

Short comments on this book by M.C. Guisan
Professor of Applied Economics (Econometrics, USC, Spain), expert on World Development studies at Ideas.Repec
Comments (provisional version): "It is a very interesting book which, in our view, deserves a positive impact on real policies addressed to foster international cooperation to development. The book includes many interesting tables, graphics thoughts and conclusions in this regard, like the following ones, among others:
Part I.  
page 54 (Evolution of ODA), 
page 84 (evolution of economic development 1980-2010 in 21 major areas of the World. While in the period 2000-2010 some areas experienced an important increase of real income per head around 300 or 400 Dollars per year, some poorest areas experienced almost stagnation even with less than 50 Dollars per year. The international comparisons call to improve the mechanisms of foreign aid in order to reach the desired goals of quality of life for World population.
page 87: quantitative estimation of the impact of 7 main channels of foreign aid to development. It is interesting to have into account not only ODA but also private,  remittances, trade, investment and other ways. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Foreign Trade (FT) have usually a high impact."

22. European crisis and the need of better economic policies for recovery: voices of economists

    Note: Elaborated by Guisan(2013) from OECD Statistics. Data of Spain (Es), France (Fr), Germany (De), Greece (Gr), Italy (It), Portugal (Pt), the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (USA).

    We may notice economic development in the period 1992-2007 in almost all the countries of the table and stagnation or declain in the period 2007-2012. The EU countries show a worse evolution than the USA.

   EU economic policies are not showing success because they are misguided towards excessive austerity and lack of incentives to development.

 There are many solutions to overcome the crisis of the period 2007-2012 and European citizens want more positive measures to improve economic development in the European Union.

  The EU authorities should listen to the voices of prestigious economists who propose better solutions.

  The European Parliament is demanding more democracy and more quality of EU economic policies in order to represent the voice of European citizens and improve economic development.

  Some interesting links to the activities of the European Parliament in this regard are the following ones:

21. Economist Carmen Guisan in New York Times. Room for Debate: Austerity Policies are not working in Europe, 12th November of 2012.

 
 An interesting debate about Euro and EU economic policies appears at the NY Times Foro "Room for Debate".
Contributions by





Aristides N. Hatzis, University of Athens
John Cotter, University College Dublin
Veronique de Rugy, George Mason University
 
 Contribution by Maria-Carmen Guisan to NY Times Foro 2012:
 

 



Austerity Measures Are Not Working

Loans from countries with a trade surplus, like Germany, to countries with trade deficits, like Spain, are necessary to keep the E.U. functioning.
 
E.U. policies should address increasing development throughout the entire E.U. instead of pushing excessive austerity, which only results in stagnation and recession. The E.U. should foster industrial development particularly in countries with low levels of industrial value-added per capita, and avoid the industrial stagnation that the E.U. has experienced over the last seven years (2005-2012). Such policies would improve the quality of life in every country and increase German sales.

Year 2013: Maria Carmen Guisan about Chipre: Voice of Galicia/Voz de Galicia 22nd March of 2013. Article in Spanish at the journal Website
Article in English here:
Europe must solve the Cyprus problem without taxing bank deposits
It is not good news that the European Union, with the banking crisis in a small country like Cyprus, revealed an overreaction of immediate discipline that induces fear for the confiscation of part of bank deposits in the country, since apart from the damage to Cyprus citizens therefore causes concern in other countries may fear similar measures.
The alarmist language (rescue, insolvency, sequestration, etc.) With which EU currently deal with the financial problems of the European Union, is absurd and exaggerated. Much of the EU countries, including Cyprus and Spain which have a very similar per capita production, are well above world average income and therefore have a reasonable ability to deal with their problems without resorting to such language or excessive austerity measures. Almost 5 billion people in the world have a per capita income that is less than 1/3 of which are Cyprus and Spain, and do not reach the 1 billion those developed countries with  an income per capita above these two countries, therefore adopt standard measures that can solve the problems effectively and without twitching.
Retrieves the confidence of depositors in savings banks is very important to overcome this economic crisis, so taxing savings is a totally undesirable measure that generate uncertainty about the integrity of bank deposits.
Solving the problem of Cyprus banking, which accounts for less than 0.2 per cent of the European economy, does not seem to be a task too complicated, so the EU bodies should be able to adopt normal measures, postponed reasonable periods, without aggressive interventions which generate fears for citizens. If the cause of the banking problems of Cyprus comes from its exposure to Greek bonds devalued, it is clear that is not the fault of its citizens but of poor design of European regulations concerning the safety of bonds of its member countries.

The costs of resolving a problem of insufficient financial capacity must be allocated appropriately, and in reasonable time, among the actors that have generated this lack of capacity. The part that has to be assumed by all the citizens of a country should be integrated into the general tax policy principles of equity and  moderation, and not applied in an arbitrary and unfair way to savings depositors.
The dream of a united Europe to cooperate amicably for the economic development of their countries appears, every day, more broken. It seems advisable that the policies of the European Union should be more prudent and effective measures to overcome the crisis, instead of causing concern and distrust of citizens.
