Este ensayo analiza los efectos de la crisis en el mundo en desarrollo, concepto que en la acepción que utilizamos incluye lo que literatura denomina “economías emergentes” (término que carece de una clara definición1), las llamadas “economías de transición” de Europa Central y Oriental (incluyendo aquellas que son actualmente miembros de la Unión Europea), y también Asia Central. El trabajo está dividido en cinco partes. La primera repasa brevemente la naturaleza y fases de la crisis desde una perspectiva global. La segunda analiza todos los canales de transmisión de la crisis hacia el mundo en desarrollo. La tercera parte considera el comportamiento de los países en desarrollo. La cuarta se centra en las respuestas políticas por parte de la comunidad internacional, y la última parte esboza algunas conclusiones en el ámbito de la política.
