Product description

Review

This is a timely and important contribution to the debate on the so-called resource curse and how to avoid it-especially important in a time of concern about energy security and sustainable economic development. As someone who witnesses first hand the struggle for more transparency and good governance in the global energy business, I welcome the fresh, thought-provoking, and always illuminating insights offered in this collection of essays. -- Lord Browne, Group Chief Executive, BP (British Petroleum) This is a timely and important effort to throw light on and seek solutions to the phenomenon of the 'resource curse' whose effects have contributed to keeping millions of people impoverished despite the wealth of their countries. It should be an essential handbook for policy makers in all oil-rich countries. -- Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Minister of Finance and Minister of Foreign Affairs for Nigeria A primer on ways governments and multinationals can ensure that resource wealth becomes not a curse but rather a source of sustained wealth.
