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.(*)

This is not only a statistical improvement, but a radical reorientation that overhauls not just the metrics but the way development is seen in mainstream economics with potentially far-reaching consequences. Read the rest of this entry »

The Jakarta Post
Sunday, January 31, 2010

Aris Ananta, Contributor, Jakarta

Widjojo Nitisastro is a humble man, not well known outside his circle. However, quietly, he made a very important contribution to the Indonesian economy, as the main architect of the Indonesian economy at the beginning of the New Order in 1966.

A book of his notes, Pengalaman Pembangunan Indonesia. Kumpulan Tulisan dan Uraian Widjojo Nitisastro (Indonesian Development Experiences. A Collection of Writing and Notes of Widjojo Nitisastro), was launched in Jakarta on Jan. 14.
