9781783603749: The Crises of Microcredit

Microcredit programs, which often give small loans to borrowers in developing countries who lack collateral, have been considered efficient tools for economic development in struggling regions around the world. Yet, recently, microcredit has come under increasing critic by experts who feel that these loans are doing more harm than good by creating a debt trap for borrowers as well as a privatized form of welfare. The Crises of Microcredit brings together distinguished contributors to offer the latest research on the effects of microcredit around the world.
 
Drawing on extensive empirical research, this important volume examines the whole chain of microcredit—from investors and donors to clients— in order to provide a comprehensive analysis of its impact. In doing so, the essays collected here shed light on the many causes of the current microcredit crisis, including microcredit organizations that have been unprepared for massive growth and greedy investors and shareholders attracted by profits. The result is a timely and necessary look at what has become one of the most contentious topics within global economic development.

"In this finely structured, well-written, comparativist book, a set of distinguished scholars with rich field experience dissect the many micro-credit crises worldwide to provide better practice for the future."
(Barbara Harriss-White, University of Oxford)

“A collection of concise, highly readable essays that explain how and why this activity has gone so wrong in varying social, political and cultural contexts.” (Financial Times)

“A deeply informed, intelligent examination of microcredit. A once universally celebrated concept, the contributors point instead to a market-driven Hobbesian world of hyper-competition, with the poor made worse off than ever. An important and convincing read for anyone still seduced by the myths of microcredit.” (Milford Bateman, author of Why Doesn't Microfinance Work?)

“The editors . . . call for a new vision of microcredit: one that sees finance and money as ‘commons’ rather than as externally owned capital. They note that in many historical cases grassroots social movements have managed to improve their lot by founding their own institutions—mutuals and cooperatives—to provide finance locally within a framework of solidarity.  We might see this as a more political approach to microcredit. The editors hope, albeit in a highly tentative way, that microcredit enthusiasts might take lessons from these historically successful models, using local initiatives to work around the failings of externally funded institutions. If microcredit is worth rescuing, this might well be the only way to do it.”
  (LSE Review of Books)

“The contributors' real-world expertise results in a hard-headed but balanced assessment of the pitfalls and promise of microcredit. Recommended.”
  (Choice)

Description du livre ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Microcredit programmes, long considered efficient development tools, now face unprecedented crises in a number of countries. Is this the end of microcredit or rather an essential step in its expansion? Should we stop microcredit altogether or rethink the way it is implemented? Drawing on extensive empirical research conducted in various parts of the world - from Morocco to Senegal to India - this important volume examines the whole chain of microcredit to provide the answers to these questions. In doing so, the authors highlight the diversity of crises, both in intensity and in nature, while also shedding light on a diversity of causes, be it microcredit organizations unprepared for massive growth, saturated local economies or greedy investors and shareholders attracted by profits. Crucially, the authors demonstrate that microcredit is not a monolithic project, and the crises should also be analysed in the light of national histories and policies. An original and necessary intervention in what has become one of the most contentious topics within the development world. N° de réf. du libraire AAR9781783603749
