Emerging and developing economies often lack practical experience in navigating their country’s systemic transformation to fully-functioning market-oriented economies. This book by former Ukraine’s Central Bank Governor Valeria Gontareva will help policy makers with this challenge. Can drastic reforms be accomplished in the most difficult times such as during wartime? Ukraine’s reform leaders have shown that it is possible, even during wartime. It may well be that the current COVID-19 wartime is a good time to do reforms. When governments and central banks around the globe spend enormous amounts of money to save lives and jobs, they can, in parallel, improve processes and eliminate inefficiencies.
'Policy Reform in the Making' is a new series from the Institute of Global Affairs at the LSE School of Public Policy under its Maryam Forum Transformational Leadership Initiative. It features original contributions from prominent policymakers, particularly in emerging and developing economies on how to reform and how to manage crisis situations. The series provides uniquely insightful material that can inspire reformers, along with academics and students.
The first event in the series will be from IGA Senior Policy Fellow Valeria Gontareva. Her book "Mission Possible: The True Story of Ukraine's Comprehensive Banking Reform and Practical Manual for Other Nations" provides a powerful account on her approach to reform and policy making.
