This volume collects nine outstanding papers presented at the first World Bank Economists' Forum, held May 3-4, 1999. Initiated by then-Chief Economist Joseph Stiglitz, the Forum highlighted papers that combined analytical rigor with potential policy impact. The inagural forum covered the landscape on modern development economics. This volume surveys much of that same territory: fiscal policy, capital flows, trade, decentralization, labor markets, infrastructure, health, and worker training are the main themes. The authors represent both the operational and the research sides of the Bank. The papers were selected from among the best Forum entries, which in turn had been selected for presentation at the Forum from 140 submitted abstracts.
