Description

In Arab Development Denied Ali Kadri takes a detailed look at issues of development and political economy in the Arab world which have been dramatically highlighted by the Arab Uprisings. Kadri argues that the Arab world has been subjected to a process of accumulation by encroachment wars leading to 'de-development'. Kadri describes de-development as the conscious strategy of eroding the resources and capacities of nation-states and removing from the peoples in those states the right to control their own resources. Combining Keynesian, Kaleckian and Marxian theories the book uncovers the historical dynamics behind the failure of development in the Arab world, and points towards policies and strategies which can overcome this legacy.show more
