Editorial Reviews


"Kathryn Lavelle explains in clear, succinct terms how national political processes lead to equity market growth, and how that growth affects the process of corporate governance - and why it sometimes fails to do so as governments maintain a continuing grip of firms (especially those formerly state-owned). She links this discussion - through case studies focusing on Eastern Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa - to cross-border equity flows and global capital markets, and to the role of international development organizations. The discussion covers the appearance of new financial products and new kinds of financial intermediaries in emerging markets, notably viable equity markets. Much of the discussion provides good news, although there are plenty of shadows involving missed opportunities and he potential for economic contamination through volatile cross-border capital flows"IR. From the Foreword by Ingo Walter - The Stern School of Business - NYU

"This book will be of value to those interested in equity finance in the developing world."--CHOICE

By Nestor Cruz on November 17, 2004
Format: Paperback
Professor Lavelle has done the world of business and economics a service by explaining the political considerations that often impact emerging market stock markets of which some people have become so enamored during the past ten years. The chapters dealing with Latin America are particularly good. It would be an excellent idea if for the next edition of this book the author would discuss at length spontaneous privatizations in former communist countries. These in turn have resulted in "mafia capitalism" in some countries, a phenomenon worth exploring. Generally though the book is quite good and thought-provoking. Nestor Enrique Cruz
