Item description for Institutional Reform and Economic Development in Egypt by Noha El-Mikawy, Heba Ahmad Handoussa, Heba Abou Shnief, Iran Economic Research Forum for the Arab Countries, and Turkey & Universitat Bonn Zentrum Fur Entwicklungsforschung ...

This pioneering volume addresses the key issue of the relationship between politics and economics, with special reference to Egypt in the 1990s. Drawing on the expertise of both political scientists and economists, it assembles an impressive array of data, including detailed opinion surveys, to demonstrate conclusively that political and economic reform need to proceed in tandem.

In an insightful analysis of the Egyptian legislature, the authors draw attention to a fundamental aspect of institutional reform, namely the informational and knowledge base of legislation as well as the organizational infrastructure of policy formulation. As regards Egypt's economic performance since the early 1990s, they focus in particular on impediments to improved export performance and offer solid recommendations as to how such obstacles might be overcome.

This stimulating study makes a timely contribution to political economic analysis, which may at the same time prove helpful in the formulation of new policies.

Reviews - What do customers think about Institutional Reform and Economic Development in Egypt?

Institutional Reform & Economic Development in Egypt  Dec 8, 2002
This valuable study of institutional aspects of liberalisation and reform exemplifies, as Robert Springborg writes in the Forward to this book, `how cross-disciplinary social science research can assist decision-makers in better understanding the relationship between political and economic reform, as well as in formulating specific policies to expedite these processes.' The volume represents not only a fine marriage of theory, empirical analysis, and policy prescription; it also makes a solid contribution to political economy. By analysing political and economic reforms as integrally related, it helps to brings clarity to issues which, in recent decades, have been clouded by the analytic convention of treating politics and economics as separate spheres of social activity.
