"Public-private partnerships have become the main mechanism for infrastructure development in Mexico. With this book the author provides us with a powerful tool for analysis, structuring, and financing of this type of operation."
Jose L. Ochoa, Chief Credit Officer of Banobras, Mexico
"I'm both a researcher and a practitioner in the PPP business, and I had the opportunity to meet Ned Yescombe, sharing with him many views and concerns. He was able to produce a book simultaneously broad and concise, but rich in description and advice.
Yescombe's book on "Public-Private Partnerships" covers a broad range of issues, providing helpful and detailed guidance for contract design and for tender design. It is useful both for the researcher who needs to understand incentive schemes and for the practitioner who needs to design new contractual mechanisms able to cope with current changes in risk perception and valuation."
Rui Sousa Monteiro, Senior Economist, Parpública, Portugal
Mr. Yescombe provides a unique and comprehensive exposition on the processes, players and current practices on structuring PPPs. This book is a friendly introduction to the subject for beginners, as well as a useful reference for practitioners.
