'How should a sovereign Palestinian state design its economic institutions and how should it run its economy? This book contains new and innovative research on these topics. It is essential reading for all those interested in peace and prosperity in the region, irrespective of their political persuasions. It also makes good reading for those interested in the interplay between politics, institutions and economic development.' - Christopher Pissarides, Professor of Economics, London School of Economics
