The traditional social and political conflicts that Bangladesh has failed to resolve over the past two decades are described by specialists on that country's economy. Some of the issues discussed are nationalization versus privatization, relationships between political and military institutions, institutionalizing and stabilizing democracy, and formulation of appropriate manpower policy. The contributors suggest policy measures to resolve the conflicts, and in doing so reveal the silver linings of the economy of Bangladesh.
