Coming in June 2015. A new design and way for users to discover research in CIAO.
CIAO Focus, May 2015: The World Bank in an Era of Globalization and Emerging Markets
The Bank has long argued that the goals of its project lending are different to those of private financial institutions, with the Bank adopting a broader social welfare objective, emphasizing poverty reduction through equitable economic growth and delivering social services to poor people. The rationale for the Bank’s role has rested on efficiency gains in the presence of market failures as much as on equity.
