About this product
- DescriptionThe issue of institutional development has come to prominence during the last decade or so. During this period even the IMF and the World Bank, which used to treat institutions as mere 'details', have come to emphasise the role of institutions in ecomic development. However, there are still some important gaps that need to be filled before we can say that we have a good grip on the issue of institutions and ecomic development, both theoretically and at the policy level. This book is an attempt to fill these gaps. Recognizing the complexity of the issues involved, this book draws together contributions from scholars in ecomics, history, political science, sociology, public administration and business administration. These experts discuss t only theoretical issues but also a diverse range of real-life institutions - political, bureaucratic, fiscal, financial, corporate, legal, social and industrial - in the context of dozens of countries across time and space - from Britain, Switzerland and the USA to today's Botswana, Brazil and China. The contributors show that there is simple formula for institutional development. Instead, real-life examples of institutional development which has been achieved through a mixture of deliberate imitation of foreign institutions and local institutional invations are discussed and studied. While arguing there is set formula for institutional development, this book will assist developing countries to improve their institutions by providing sophisticated theoretical discussions and helpful policy ideas based on real-life cases.
