The Indonesian Development Experience

 

The Indonesian Development Experience: 

 A  Collection of Writings and Speeches

 

This book, written by Widjojo Nitisastro, the influential economist and architect of the economy during the beginning of the New Order  in Indonesia, will be published by Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) in the middle of 2011. It has a rich selection of speeches and writings of Professor Widjojo Nitisastro during 1968 to 1993.  Much of his life’s work was dedicated to radically changing Indonesia’s command economy (during Soekarno era) to focus on development planning using economic analysis.  He is one of the most respected and influential economists of the twentieth century.

 

This book provides invaluable insight for all who are interested in Indonesia’s economic development. It is divided into six parts: Indonesia’s Development Plan; Implementation of Indonesian Development; Facing Economic Crises; Foreign Debt Management; Equity and Development; and Indonesia and the World.(*)

TRADE OFF BETWEEN ENVIRONMENTAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL GOALS?

Aris  Ananta

For  Mletiko, 22 December  2010

It is very encouraging to hear that the Indonesia’s Minister of Trade, Mari Pengestu, has urged the palm oil industrialists to do their business without sacrificing the environment. The minister asked the industrialists, who just convened in Bali, Indonesia, to improve the international image of Indonesia. Until now, Indonesia has been accused of sacrificing its environments for its economic growth, including the growth of the palm-oil industries.

Sadly,  some participants of the conference  believed that there were two opposing groups. One is the government of Indonesia, who was concerned with social and economic development. Another group comprises the  NGOs who  were interested on environment.  This dichotomy may have led to a perception that the government of Indonesia did not care about environmental goals, while the NGOs did not pay attention to social and economic development issues.

We also heard   statements implying that  though the industries have been harmful to the environments, they have contributed a lot to economic growth, social development, and employment creation.   They also argued that  Indonesia is a still a low-income country. Indonesia  needs to grow and therefore, Indonesia should be allowed to destroy its environment for the benefit of growth. They implicitly said that the “benefit” from the industries can compensate the suffering of the people from the environmental degradation. They  do not know that the poor usually suffers the most from environmental degradation, though in the short term the poor may seem to enjoy the destruction of the environment. This is similar to the arguments used by cigarette industries to defend their businesses. Read the rest of this entry »
