India and China

For those of you lucky enough to attend the drop-in session yesterday (blog posting), we talked a lot about the World Bank. While working towards their mission of reduction of global poverty, there are numerous publications from the World Bank on the global economy.

Today, they have released the book "Dancing with Giants: China, India and the Global Economy." This book, which if available for free online, examines these two countries (number 1 and 2 in terms of population) and their possible effect on both the developing and developed countries of today. "Three chapters focus on the Giants’ interactions with other countries (via the evolution of their industrial capabilities, their international trade, and the international financial system), two chapters consider possible constraints and influences on their growth (inequality and governance), and one chapter combines the analysis of local constraints and global perspectives (on energy and emissions)."

For those of you on the Boulder campus, we have a three World Bank databases you might want to check out.
Want to learn more about the World Bank? Check out the library's guide, which includes links to these databases, as well as links to free web resources.
