New concepts and priorities like social capital and governance have been taken on board alongside the continuing pressures on developing countries for deregulation, privatization, free trade and so on.

In what ways has the so-called post-Washington Consensus and its New Development Economics really parted company with the overly simplistic nostrums of the still dominant market economics?
