Summary note:
"This book is an authoritative and radical manifesto for urgently needed changes in development cooperation. It proposes that, unless radical steps are taken by the World Bank, the first decade of the century will witness an ever-widening gulf between the poor and rich countries." "A Chance for the World Bank provides an overview of the challenges faced by the World Bank, and explores how it has organized itself to deal with its mission. This book proposes that the World Bank still has a chance to achieve its stated goals; in order to do so, it needs to take a number of radical steps: to create a level playing field in trade for the developing countries; to harmonize aid and save developing countries from the gigantic transaction costs of aid; and to promote governance in developing countries and to reduce rigorously induced corruption by multinationals."--Jacket.
