Since the birth of Bangladesh in December 1971, successive governments have adopted the orthodox economic policies advocated by aid donors and international agencies; they have in particular carried out a "green revolution", raised interest rates, devalued the currency, privatized state firms and maintained a small public sector. But, this book shows that poverty and inequality have increased, largely because governments lacked stability and authority.
