They also investigate the various barriers and lock-in mechanisms by which subsidies become entrenched in economic and political structures. The book goes on to propose concrete actions, policy strategies and international ‘Grand Deals’ which will engender effective subsidy reforms. Cees van Beers & André de Moor, 2001.

This is an enormously significant book. Cees van Beers and André de Moor have not only identified the main obstacles but also suggested new pathways to the key public policy reforms needed to move toward a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable future. Their work is superb, marked by insight, innovation, rigor of analyses, and strength of argument.

- From the Foreword by Jim MacNeill, Chairman, World Bank Inspection Panel

This book highlights one of the most productive things environmental groups, economists and policy officials could do for society: form a partnership to push for cuts to subsidies that simultaneously damage the economy and the environment. The authors have made that task easier for those groups by providing a comprehensive and yet very readable analysis of the issue. They provide an assessment of the overall extent of subsidies to different sectors in rich and poor countries, including a wide range of case studies. This is a must buy for people seriously interested in finding ways to improve the environment that contribute to rather than deplete national treasuries and development prospects.

The allocation of subsidies is often regarded as a fundamental role of governments in order to realize and maintain benefits to society. The possibility that public subsidies could actually be counterproductive contradicts common perception. The authors of this challenging book present recent evidence which, in their view, suggests that subsidies may in fact turn out to be a contemporary plague.

Public Subsidies and Policy Failures provides extensive analysis of the theory and political economy of public support policies, demonstrating how subsidies can harm the environment, distort trade, and benefit those in society who do not require support. Furthermore, they often fail to achieve the desired and expected goals. The authors employ a theoretical framework to illustrate the impact of subsidies on developed and developing economies, as well as on international trade. They examine public subsidies in various natural resource and industrial sectors and discover that many turn out to be policy failures. They also investigate the various barriers and lock-in mechanisms by which subsidies become entrenched in economic and political structures. The book goes on to propose concrete actions, policy strategies and international Grand Deals which will engender effective subsidy reforms.

Scholars, researchers and students will welcome this rigorous investigation into the political and economic costs and benefits of public subsidies. International trade organizations and policymakers will also benefit from the strategic emphasis.
