Judicial Systems in Transition Economies : Assessing the Past, Looking to the FutureGray, Cheryl W.; Bernstein, Daivd S.; Anderson, James H. (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2005)The report examines how courts have performed, and reveals their impact on public opinion and the business environment. It provides insight into linkages among reforms as well as linkages between reforms and public demand for a fair judiciary. The authors show that while each country presents different challenges and opportunities, certain lessons apply in most settings. Their insights and data would be useful to policy makers, judicial personnel, and those involved in reforming judiciaries.
Korea and the Knowledge-based Economy : Making the TransitionDahlman, Carl; Anderson, Thomas; Anderson, Thomas; Dahlman, Carl (Washington, DC: World Bank and OECD, 2000-06)Knowledge is fast becoming a key factor in economic and social development worldwide. Rapid innovations in science, communications and computing technologies are opening up new opportunities for countries to harness knowledge and participate more fully in the global economy. Developing countries that successfully make the transition to the knowledge-based economy will have unprecedented possibilities to become more competitive in world markets and to participate in the global information society. New technologies can also extend the benefits of knowledge to all segments of society and help countries close the gap in living standards among their citizens. This book defines a knowledge-based economy as one where knowledge is created, acquired, transmitted and used effectively by enterprises, organizations, individuals and communities. It does not focus narrowly on high-technology industries or on information and communications technologies, but rather presents a framework for analyzing a range of policy options in education, information infrastructure and innovation systems that can help usher in the knowledge economy. It also makes the case for better co-ordination among the government, the private sector and civil society to enhance competitiveness and advance economic and social development.
Buildings Market Institutions in South Eastern Europe : Comparative Prospects for Investment and Private Sector DevelopmentSlavova, Stefka; Broadman, Harry G.; Vagliasindi, Maria; Ryterman, Randi; Vincelette, Gallina A.; Anderson, James; Claessens, Constantijn A. (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2013-08-08)This report studies impediments to
investment and private sector development in Albania, Bosnia
and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the former Yugoslav
Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, and Serbia and
Montenegro. It aims to yield fundamentally new insights for
improving the region's business environment, economic
development, and prospects for growth. It focuses on four
core topics: 1) Business competition and economic barriers
to entry and exit; 2) Access to regulated utilities and
services; 3) Corporate ownership, transparency of business
accounts, and access to finance; and 4) Mechanisms for
commercial dispute resolution. Each topic is empirically
investigated across all eight South Eastern European
countries through the systematic use of data from multiple
sources: Official data from each country in the region;
results from two annual rounds of quantitative, firm-level
surveys covering 1,600 firms; and results from 40 originally
developed enterprise-level business case studies. The result
is an innovative analysis of cross-country comparisons and
the development of key policy challenges from a regional
perspective. The report ends by making concrete
recommendations for reforms that would ease the constraints
on domestic and foreign investment, an essential step in
sustaining growth and reducing poverty in the region.
