Published Year



As Sri Lanka entered into the second half of the country’s first post-war decade in May this year, the 8th Edition of the TE Digest takes a closer look at the challenges for post-war Sri Lanka in a special series titled ‘Post-war Economy: 5 Years On’.

The ‘Talking Economics Digest’, published bi-annually, is a compilation of articles featured on the IPS Blog Talking Economics within a 6 month time period, together with new articles and special feature segments.

As we distribute only a limited number of printed copies of the Digest, we present here the latest e-version of it for you.
