Summary

Combining rigorous economic and political analysis with narrative highlights, this volume chronicles remarkable rags-to-riches stories that will inspire and educate readers. As an important contribution to the literature on economic development, Lessons from the Poor is a must-read for global investors, microlenders, foreign policy analysts, political economists, international relations experts, and anyone interested in helping the poor find a way out of poverty. With stories that look at the textile and soft drink industries in Peru, the growth of Kenya's chain stores and one-person kiosks, the rise of barter clubs in Argentina, and Nigerian clothing design, these studies provide insights into entrepreneurship and the role that government regulations often play in impeding development.
