Abstract

China and India have each followed different development paths. The policy settings that have provided the context for each country’s development have also differed considerably from each other and from those of the Washington Consensus -- the name for the policies imposed by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank on countries that require their assistance.

The development paths and policy settings of China and India shine an uncomfortable spotlight on the Washington Consensus policies. The paper concludes that an entirely new approach is needed to the development of poorer nations.

Keywords: Law and Economics, China and India
