Summary

As they enter the new millennium, developing countries are struggling to recover from one of their deepest recessions since World War II. 'Global Economic Prospects 2000' will improve your understanding and keep you informed of the forces shaping today's changing global economy.The report offers an in-depth analysis of the economic prospects of developing economies in the wake of the financial crisis and as they enter the new millennium. It examines the impact of the recent financial crisis on growth and poverty in the developing world and reviews economic output, trade, and financial developments in industrial economies. 'Global Economic Prospects 2000' focuses on three main issues: * how Sub-Saharan African commodity exporters and major developing country oil exporters have adjusted to the sharp swings in commodity prices since the mid-1990s; * the extent of corporate restructuring in East Asia and its role in their recovery; * the impact of the recent crisis on poverty in developing countries. As in past editions, detailed statistical tables and an analysis of developments for each of the developing country regions are included.'Global Economic Prospects 2000' provides essential information for anyone concerned with the economic developments affecting our shifting global economy.
