About the Series

In recent years, global development thinking has shifted significantly from free markets to a more active role of government in supporting private sector-led growth. Developing country governments are enhancing policy capability to ignite and sustain growth and industralization. This book series sheds some light on what concrete procedure and method to adopt for the building of policy capability.

The series builds on and complements the policy consensus by presenting mindsets, policies and institutions which generated high growth in successful latecomer countries. Concrete cases and experiences are provided. They are illustrated by comparative analysis and extraction of factors contributing to successes and failures in these cases.

The series adds new perspective to global development thinking with East-Asian and Meso-level focus. Its pragmatic, concrete and comparative approach would prove to be useful in assisting policy making.
