Graham looks at social service reform initiatives in Chile, Peru, Bolivia, the Czech Republic, and Zambia, and offers analyses of salient equity, performance, and political issues. This by no means eliminates an active role for the state in providing public goods and services. Indeed, in this study the most unsuccessful reforms stemmed from government failure rather than market failures. Objective yet committed is a succinct description of Carol Graham’s analytic and comparative book on policies and reform in countries as diverse as Bolivia and the Czech Republic, as Zambia, Chile, and Peru.

This book studies the effects of incorporating market incentives into the public goods arena. Carol Graham examines the effects of market-based strategies on the performance of public institutions, the political sustainability of market reforms, and equity. In so doing, she examines a variety of reform experiences in the realms of education, health, social security, and state- owned enterprises and across a range of country and income contexts, with case studies drawn from Latin America, Africa, and Eastern Europe.

The studies show that the incorporation of new market incentives, such as vouchers in education and private social security systems, can have positive effects on the performance of public institutions. The effects on equity are less clear, however, and in many cases efficiency gains entail short-term equity losses. The poorest sectors are usually least equipped to take advantage of new incentives and may be marginalized from the reforms and lose access to essential services. Yet in the long-term, negative equity effects are usually counter-balanced by the benefits of enhancing the performance of public institutions. As this book makes clear, the issues explored have relevance for advanced industrial societies as well as for developing economies.
