9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crucial Needs, Weak Incentives studies the politics of efforts to reform education and health services in Latin America in the 1990s. Both sectors were common targets of reform -- education because of its economic importance, health care because of needs to reduce great inequities of access and opportunities to increase domestic savings presented by reforms. Both sectors also have large numbers of unionized public employees, whose presence affects patronage as well as political power. The book presents case studies that offer a wealth of new information not previously accessible to the English-speaking academic and policy community. For health care, these cover Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Peru for eductaion, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Four chapters by the editors set out for each sector the goals, structure, and outcomes of reform efforts

Intricate links : democratization and market reforms in Latin America and Eastern Europe by Joan M Nelson( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Eastern Europe and Latin America two trends are under way: 1) far-reaching reforms to convert economies from inward-oriented, state-dominated models to more open, market-driven approaches; and 2) efforts to consolidate democratic political openings replacing earlier authoritarian regimes. These reforms often conflict, yet paradoxically the success of each is crucial to the other. Building on earlier case studies in both regions this volume explores issues common to both regions and critical to the prospects of economic and political reforms, with contributions from Joan Nelson, Jacek Kochanowicz, Kalman Mizsei, and Oscar Munoz

Reforming health and education : the World Bank, the IDB, and complex institutional change by Joan M Nelson( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1990s, far-reacing reforms in the health and education sectors have become a high priority in much of the developing world. But with few exceptions reforms in these fields have proved slow, modest, and subject to crosion or reversal. Dr. Neslon explores the obstacles to reform and the potential and limits of the banks' roles in helping to overcome these obstacles. She reviews the substantial changes already made in fending instruments and approaches, and identifies constraints within the banks themselves that are yet to be effectively addressed."--Jacket
