Description - The World Bank by Christopher L. Gilbert

The World Bank is dedicated to the promotion of sustainable economic development and to poverty reduction throughout the developing world. The contributors to this volume argue the Bank's greatest asset is its accumulated knowledge and experience of the development process, and propose that it organize itself around the concept of a "Knowledge Bank." Part I examines the World Bank as an institution, examining its structure. In Part II the effectiveness of World Bank assistance is evaluated.
