Much of the debate about development in the past decade pitted
proponents of unfettered markets against advocates of developmental
states. Yet, in many developing countries what best explains
variations in economic performance is not markets or states but
rather the character of relations between business and government.
The studies in Business and the State in Developing Countries
identify a range of close, collaborative relations between
bureaucrats and capitalists that enhance elements of economic
performance and defy conventional expectations that such relations
lead ineluctably to rent-seeking, corruption, and collusion. All
based on extensive field research, the essays contrast
collaborative and collusive relations in a wide range of developing
countries, mostly in Latin America and Asia, and isolate the
conditions under which collaboration is most likely to emerge and
survive. The contributors highlight the crucial roles played by
capable bureaucracies and strong business associations.
