As the name suggests, this book is about “Management and Economic Policy for Development”. This volume, which is written by two dozen distinguished scholars, including the Nobel Laureate, Professor Edmund E. Phelps from Columbia University, successful managers and policy-makers from a number of countries and different cultures, discussing the conditions for good economic performance, successful microeconomic management and macroeconomic governance. The complex analysis leads the authors to conclusions about why the contemporary knowledge-based economy depends on a sound economic performance, competitiveness and economic growth.

This book is a must read for everybody looking for an answer on how to manage and govern his/her business, his/her region, his/her organization, or even his/her country. The book has been edited by Professor Grzegorz W. Kolodko, founder and Director of TIGER, Transformation, Integration, and Globalization Economic Research at Kozminski University, former deputy prime minister and minister of finance of Poland, a country successful in post-socialist systemic transformation. He claims, on the one hand, that a sound economic policy and good company management must be based on proper theory; and, on the other hand, that a good theory must rely on critical observation and an analysis of practice. If this is what you are interested in, then this book is for you. (Imprint: Nova)
