The purpose of this book is to examine the performance of Guyana's economy during the era of dirigisme and the period of economic liberalisation with emphasis on a market economy, using all available micro-and macro-data. In a much broader and meaningful sense, this book deals with the socio-economic progress of Guyana from the 1960s, with heavy emphasis on the market reforms, because this is the dominant and interesting story for policy lessons in the Third World. This book also focuses on what has happened to poverty, inequality, and other social indicators during the reform period. Until now, there has not been any systematic examination of the effects of the economic reforms in Guyana on unemployment, wages and industrial activity; poverty and inequality; farmers' response to price liberalisation; education and health indicators; ethnicity and growth; and governance, crime and corruption. These issues and more are the subject matter of this book. The book refers to those aspects of Guyana's history and recent political events that bear directly on economic policy and the performance of the economic system.

This book analyzes Guyana's experience with macroeconomic stabilization and structural reforms between 1989 and 2000 and discusses the risks and challenges that the country faces in its quest to achieve sustainable growth and further reduce poverty. During this period, Guyana transitioned successfully from a state-controlled to a market economy. Stability was restored, growth recovered markedly, and poverty declined as a result of implementing strong macroeconomic policies and wide-ranging structural reforms. The success of the poverty reduction strategy that the country has developed hinges on the implementation of sound macroeconomic policies, further lowering of the country's external debt burden, acceleration of the restructuring of institutions and the economy, and the existence of a stable political environment.
This book explains the emerging system of domination and the exercise of power in the Third World society of Guyana. It is concerned with the police as a bureaucratic inheritance.
