The global financial crisis is already beginning to have an impact on the 'real economy' in poorer countries around the world. However, the debate in the west about the impact of the crisis has largely ignored its impact on the developing world, and the voices of people from these countries are rarely heard.
In November 2008, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Sussex, UK, published a report on "Voices from the South. The impact of the global financial crisis on developing countries". In this publication, twenty-one thinkers, academics and policymakers from 14 developing countries present snapshot views of how the financial crisis is affecting their countries.
