Just felt like throwing this out!
The Growth Blog: Exchanging Views on Growth and Development. Here is a post about a panel discussion, which I attended while I was in DC, on growth strategies for the developing countries.
Also, Shanta Devarajan has launched a blog on African development:
- African banking systems are unlikely to experience the turbulence of the U.S. banking system.
- A cutback in foreign capital inflows could seriously affect growth and poverty reduction in Africa.
- If the financial market turmoil leads to a recession in the U.S. and elsewhere, commodity prices will likely fall.
- Of greater concern in Africa is the resurgence of inflation and macroeconomic imbalances in some countries.
