Reviews - What do customers think about Just Get Out of the Way: How Government Can Help Business in Poor Countries?

Worth a close read  Jun 18, 2004
A trenchant discussion of the usefulness of government (or lack thereof) in creating sustainable economic growth. Solid, well-written, practical and entertaining. The portions on the privatization and the moral hazards posed by IFA lending were particularly good. If you're a student of economic development, a private sector development professional, or just looking for a primer to help you understand why so much goes so badly wrong in the world's poorest countries, this is the book for you.
A timely, expert, seminal, & intrinscially interesting work  Apr 5, 2004
Accessibly written by Robert E. Anderson (an economic development expert who has 10 years of experience with the World Bank working on development issues in more than 15 countries), Just Get Out Of The Way: How Government Can Help Business In Poor Countries is a "tell it like it is" account that warns against helping developing countries by pursuing policies that are used in rich countries. Instead, Just Get Out Of The Way stresses that policymakers should pay attention to the specific institutional weaknesses of developing countries, with an especial watch and guard against corruption and cronyism, as well as much simpler market-oriented policies. A timely, expert, seminal, and intrinscially interesting work, Just Get Out Of The Way is a very highly recommended contribution to International Economics Studies collections and a "must read" book for private, corporate, and governmental policy makers in the field of international economic development.
Great Book  Feb 3, 2004
