The State and Prospects of the Bangladesh Economy

  • Nurul Islam
Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


Bangladesh is an old land but a new nation. On the one hand, it is beset with problems inherited from years of underdevelopment and neglect in the past; on the other hand, the tragic circumstances under which Bangladesh was born as an independent nation have created a new set of problems. The ravages of the war of liberation in 1971 followed closely on the heels of an unprecedented cyclone in 1970, which devastated the coastal areas of Bangladesh. The state of the economy of Bangladesh as it emerges after one year bears the marks of both years of neglect as well as of the damages and destruction caused by the recent war.
