Living standards and the wealth of nations: successes and failures in real convergence.

I was delighted to be asked to review this book, particularly when I found that it dealt with my current preoccupation of the role of capital markets and economic development from a broader point of view.

This is a vital topic which has received far less attention than it deserves.
