Overview

Liberalization in the Developing World compares the success of liberalization strategies in Asia, Africa and Latin America over the past decade. Three models emerge, corresponding to the three continents covered, which reflect the degree of state intervention in the economy and the success of liberalization policies adopted.

The conclusions drawn demonstrate that economic and political liberalization do not have to go hand in hand. On the contrary, the case studies presented illustrate that the role of the state can be crucial in mobilizing both the human and capital investment needed to be able to compete in the international economy.
