Small States in the Global Economy

image of Small States in the Global Economy

The book contains fiftyfour tables covering selected economic, social, demographic and Millennium Development Goal indicators culled from international and national sources and presents information unavailable elsewhere. A detailed parallel commentary on trends in Commonwealth small states, looking at growth, employment, inflation, human development, and economic policy, permits a deeper understanding of developments behind the figures.




This book is about the special problems, challenges and opportunities faced by small developing countries in today's increasingly global economy. The report of the Joint Commonwealth Secretariat/World Bank Task Force on Small States (Small States: Meeting the Challenges in the Global Economy, 2000) helped put these issues firmly on the international agenda. This book publishes and brings together for the first time background papers produced in the course of the work of the Task Force and presented at two global conferences that helped frame its conclusions.
