This book explores the connection between strong
democracy and neoliberal development schemes based on the
concept of -social entrepreneurship- in Thailand and
Southern India. This book addresses the intersection
between emerging approaches to development, namely
microfinance, microenterprise, and social
entrepreneurship, and the ability of societies to
generate their own public goods without state
assistance.The author examines the challenges of
democratic governance and generation of public goods
where civil society and democracy, as development
strategies, have become less meaningful to citizens
across the developing world than micro-development.
