Abstract:The global economic crisis has exposed structural imbalances in financial and credit markets in addition to global trade forcing many governments, developed and developing, to impose measures that are exacerbating structural weaknesses. This book offers historical insights into the origins of the contemporary crisis as well as detailed analyses of the financial and trade dimensions, an assessment of the technological and innovation context, along with perspectives on the implications for unemployment and gender imbalances. Part I reviews the historical context, with chapter 4 focusing on the crisis in Africa, part II deals with finance and trade, part III with technology and innovation, part IV with gender and employment, part V with the case of South Africa, as an example of a big developing State, and part VI with the Caribbean, as an example for small developing States.
