About this book

This book investigates the political conditions and policies most likely to bring about progress toward inclusive development, drawing on in-depth analyses of four cases studies with distinct development trajectories (Mexico, Indonesia, Chile and South Korea). While exclusion and differential inclusion have long been features of development in the Global South, economic globalization has introduced new forms with which Global South countries must grapple. The book highlights the main policy drawbacks of most official approaches: neglect of the need to enhance the role and capacity of states, the focus on certain types of poverty alleviation strategies, and the tendency to disregard the need for productive employment generating activities and rural development. Neglect of issues of power and politics, however, is the most glaring inadequacy. Teichman argues that making progress toward inclusive development is primarily a political struggle. It requires a committed leadership with broadly based societal support - an inclusive development coalition - which includes usually small but politically important middle classes.

Reviews

“The Politics of Inclusive Development is a much-needed corrective to a literature that has for too long focused on the hoary antinomies of ‘state’ versus ‘market’ or ‘growth’ versus ‘development’. In this book, Teichman delivers a powerful statement of the conditions under which truly inclusive development are possible. It is a must-read for scholars and practitioners of economic development alike.” (Prof. Marcus Kurtz, Ohio State University, USA, Author of Free Market Democracy and the Chilean and Mexican Countryside and Latin American State Building in Comparative Perspective)

“This creative book examines the critically important issue of how countries develop inclusive political economies. Teichman mixes theory and empirics, including both historical and in-depth contemporary case studies, to assess the political underpinnings of inclusive social development. Importantly, the book highlights the important role of the state in triggering synergies between productive development and social inclusion.” (Prof. Ken Shadlen, Professor of Development Studies, London School of Economics, UK, and one of the Managing Editors of the Journal of Development Studies)

“In this important book, Judith Teichman lays out an argument that basic political agreements are the foundation to support policies that promote employment generation and targeted redistribution as essential means toward equitable, inclusive social development. Whether one agrees or opposes, this lucid, accessible argument stakes out key positions that will inform future debates on growth and distribution.” (John Bailey, Emeritus Professor, Department of Government and School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, USA, and Author of The Politics of Crime in Mexico: Democratic Governance in a Security Trap)
