Neoliberal Approaches to State Development

Discuss the strengths and limitations of the current model of development in one country.

Examine the advantages and limits of neoliberal approaches to the role of the state in development, as compared to those offered by the developmental state approach, and reflect on the lessons that experiences with the developmental state might offer today. Select one developing country, and examine the impact of neoliberalism on socioeconomic development there. Drawing on concrete examples, analyze the ways in which (or whether) climate breakdown poses fundamental challenges to the development patterns and paradigms inherited from the neoliberal phase of capitalist development.
