This book consists of eight case studies investigating the political economy of the decision chain involved in natural resource extraction in resource-rich countries, where plunder rather than prosperity has become the norm. Some case studies reveal successes, while others show the decision chain to have failed disastrously.

Review:

'Plundered Nations is a very important book at a crucial time. It lays out the values, principles, and competences needed to transform resource wealth into a sustainable improvement in the lives of present and future generations. A series of insightful case studies on a range of countries make these principles vivid, concrete and accessible. This book will be widely read and highly influential in accelerating the transformation of natural resource wealth management.' - Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate
