Download and read online Global Economic Prospects and the Developing Countries in PDF and EPUB This edition of the annual publication considers the need to reshape the global architecture of world trade, in order to help strengthen the economies of developing countries and reduce world poverty. The report focuses on four policy areas: the establishment of a development round of WTO negotiations to reduce trade barriers; global co-operation to expand trade outside the WTO; the adoption of pro-trade development policies by high-income countries; and enacting trade reforms in developing countries. The findings of the report suggest that developing countries could significantly increase their incomes, if all countries progressively implement the proposed trade reforms. This would result in a world with a much higher standard of living, an estimated 300 million people lifted out of poverty by 2015, and a significant increase in the number of children living beyond their fifth birthday throughout the developing world.
Download and read online The Game of the Rose in PDF and EPUB The Dutch no longer rule supreme in the world flower market. Since the late eighties, developing countries such as Colombia and Kenya have seized a large - and growing - market share. The Game of the Rose is a report from the frontlines of this new War of the Roses (and Other Cut Flowers). Are Southern growers cornering the market? European growers fear their tropical competitors, and with reason. Yet they also do thriving business with growers in Africa, India and South America. The South pays highly for the services of Northern managers, crop specialists, marketing experts, for Northern plant material and for Northern equipment. Many of the African growers themselves are European. The developing countries furnish the flower trade with cheap labour, with scarce arable land and even scarcer water resources. They expose their populations to carelessly sprayed toxic pesticides. Who profits? The profits from the flower industry are highly uncertain - and are in any case being drained off to the North. Why, then, are Northern development consultants advising governments and entrepreneurs in the South to adopt such a risky and disadvantageous strategy?

Download and read online Favored Flowers in PDF and EPUB Billions of fresh-cut flowers are flown into the United States every year, allowing Americans to choose from a broad array of blooms regardless of the season. Favored Flowers is a lively investigation of the worldwide production and distribution of fresh-cut flowers and their consumption in the New York metropolitan area. In an ethnography filled with roses, orchids, and gerberas, flower auctions, new hybrids, and new logistical systems, Catherine Ziegler unravels the economic and cultural strands of the global flower market. She provides an historical overview of the development of the cut flower industry in New York from the late nineteenth century to 1970, and on to its ultimate transformation from a domestic to a global industry. As she points out, cut flowers serve no utilitarian purpose; rather, they signal consumers’ social and cultural decisions about expressing love, mourning, status, and identity. Ziegler shows how consumer behavior and choices have changed over time and how they are shaped by the media, by the types of available flowers, and by flower retailing. Ziegler interviewed more than 250 people as she followed flowers along the full length of the commodity chain, from cuttings in Europe and Latin America to vases in and around New York. She examines the daily experiences of flower growers in the Netherlands and Ecuador, two leading exporters of flowers to the United States. Primary focus, though, is on others in the commodity chain: exporters, importers, wholesalers, and retailers. She follows their activities as they respond to changing competition, supply, and consumer behavior in a market characterized by risk, volatility, and imperfect knowledge. By tracing changes in the wholesale and retail systems, she shows the recent development of two complementary commodity chains in New York and the United States generally. One leads to a high-end luxury market served by specialty florists and designers, and the other to a lower-priced mass market served by chain groceries, corner delis, and retail superstores.

Download and read online Flower Fairies Journal in PDF and EPUB The year is 1920, and a young (and as yet unpublished) Cicely Mary Barker is staying at a friend's cottage in Storrington, West Sussex, for the spring and summer. Over the months as she sketches and writes in the gardens and grounds, she starts to suspect the presence of fairies in the flowers all around her. Her journal reveals her thoughts and musings, and includes sketches, research into general fairy folklore and many more extra items, as she searches for evidence that the Flower Fairies exist!
