Decentralisation, Corruption and Social Capital
From India to the West
Widmalm argues that there exists a strong and direct connection between degrees of corruption in village performance and the level of trust in society, even though only an ambiguous link can be said to exist between decentralisation and corruption. However, the kind of trust most strongly related to performance is not the kind we would expect from a reading of development literature or from the policies of certain aid agencies. This book shows that the relationship between decentralisation, corruption and social capital can be well understood if illuminated through the prism of collective action theory. Further, it dwells upon the consequences of these research results for aid policies.
Decentralisation, Corruption and Social Capital: From India to the West would be invaluable to aid agencies and development-oriented organisations, as well as students and researchers working in the areas of development, governance, decentralisation, federalism, social capital and civil society.

The book as a whole is a significant contribution to the theme of global finance, particularly its emphasis on the ideology that underpins the functioning of financial global markets, the implications for local institutions and market structures, and for macroeconomic and regulatory policy.
Invaluable and rewarding read.
