9780821384800: Rents to Riches?: The Political Economy of Natural Resource-Led Development (World Bank Publications)

Rents to Riches? focuses on the political economy of the detailed decisions that governments make at each step of the natural resource management (nrm) value chain. Many resource-dependent developing countries pursue seemingly shortsighted and suboptimal policies when extracting, taxing, and investing resource rents. The book contextualizes these micro-level outcomes with an emphasis on two central political economy dimensions: the degree to which governments can make credible intertemporal commitments to both resource developers and citizens, and the degree to which governments are inclusive and inclined to turn resource rents into public goods.

Almost 1.5 billion people live in the more than 50 World Bank client countries classified as resource-dependent. A detailed understanding of the way political economy characteristics affect the nrm decisions made in these countries by governments, extractive developers, and society can improve the design of interventions to support welfare-enhancing policy making and governance in the natural resource sectors. Featuring case study work from Africa (Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria), East Asia and Pacific (the Lao People s Democratic Republic, Mongolia, Timor-Leste), and Latin America and the Caribbean (Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago), the book provides guidance for government clients, domestic stakeholders, and development partners committed to transforming natural resource rents into sustainable development riches.

Review:

Governments are often advised to manage their mineral wealth in accordance with international 'best practice.' Yet the authors of this insightful book point out that there are no 'one-size-fitsall' solutions to the dilemmas created by resource wealth: policies that work in some countries may not be appropriate, or feasible, for others. Rents to Riches? argues that we must account for a country's political and economic realities, and devise incentive-compatible reforms that can help nations turn their resource wealth into sustainable gains in people s everyday lives. This book is unique, essential, and filled with invaluable and practical ideas. --MICHAEL L. ROSS, Professor of Political Science, University of California, Los Angeles

For many poor and fragile countries, reserves of oil, gas, and minerals may seem to promise unlimited economic development. Rents to Riches? is an important, timely, cautionary guide to the governments of those countries as well as international policy makers, beginning with its reminder that governments manage natural resources in trust for citizens, who are the actual owners. No less vital is the authors emphasis on transparency as an essential ingredient of good governance at every stage of the value chain. There are fresh, valuable lessons in every chapter. --KARIN LISSAKERS, Director, The Revenue Watch Institute, New York
