At the turn of the new century, economic thought now faces, this book argues, a fundamental intellectual question, and one with the most profound consequences for all humanity. Is it really true, as the devotees of free market economics demand we assume, that there is no alternative to the neo-liberal ideology of (allegedly) self-regulating markets, the abandonment by governments of their economic management responsibilities, and the relentless pressure to cut both real wages and social expenditure?

A The recent Asian and Mexican currency crises have provided a somber lesson that in a global economic setting, the exchange rate policy, and more broadly monetary and financial policy cannot be treated in a business as usual manner. The stake is high because exchange rate policy has profound impact on current and future macroeconomic performance. This book is a modest attempt to highlight the above contention from a broad perspective for the emerging market economy of Bangladesh.

The book is the outcome of a seminar that looked at the nature of challenges and the policy options facing Bangladesh in achieving accelerated, sustained and equitable economic growth. Since the early 1990s, Bangladesh has notably improved its economic growth performance following the introduction of market-oriented liberalising economic reforms. The positive impact of economic growth on poverty was, however, compromised to some extent by a worsening of income distribution.

Some two dozen countries are already classified as water-scarce, and this-as areas as diverse as Israel, southern California and even the Netherlands know - is not a problem confined to the South. Already, as this book shows, fresh-water shortages are becoming a major cause of conflict both domestically and between states. In the future, the growing world population, further spread of irrigated agriculture and industrialization will all make increasing demands on scarce water resources. Conflict resolution capabilities in many parts of the world will be sorely stretched.

This book is a sincere venture to bridge the generation gap. The author recollects the socio-political, academic and cultural atmosphere of Dhaka during the 1950’s and 1960’s and seeks to contrast it with the existing situation. There are strong overtones of nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ and an apparent disdain for the ‘present day violence and disorder.
