Review

'Plundered Nations is a very important book at a crucial time. It lays out the values, principles, and competences needed to transform resource wealth into a sustainable improvement in the lives of present and future generations. A series of insightful case studies on a range of countries make these principles vivid, concrete and accessible. This book will be widely read and highly influential in accelerating the transformation of natural resource wealth management.' - Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate
