The third of a series of books dedicated to disseminating research findings and conceptual studies of the UK's Centre on Regulation and Competition, this volume focuses on the impact of regulation in African and Latin American countries. The 12 chapters presented by Amann (development economics, U. of Manchester, UK) begin with a review of critical general issues, including the relationship between the World Trade Organization and domestic regulation; cross-country analysis of the impact of regulation on economic growth in developing countries; and the growth of international intellectual property regulation and their impacts on developing economies. The next three chapters focus on the Brazilian experience, tracking the development of domestic regulations, appraising the country's regulatory agencies, and examining corporate governance in the post-privatized Brazilian steel industry. The remaining chapters move to discussion of South Africa, Ghana, and other African countries and include analysis of public and private water utility performance, relations between privatization and regulation, the implications of the changing regulatory environment for small- and medium-sized enterprises, and regulating for competition in the telecommunications industry.
