  • This book has its conceptual origin from the lecture materials of the training courses taught by one of the authors in the early nineties. It was during this period that in several developing nations, particularly in Africa, even when the signs of widespread hunger and abject poverty were visible, policy makers did not act for want of ‘empirical evidence’. Some policy makers even dismissed the severity of the problem saying that the hunger reports prepared by government officials were not rigorous enough to take them seriously.

  • Our goal is to provide food for thought rather than an off-the-shelf solution. Many of the outside practices we explore are somewhat distant from conventional thinking. We are aware that some of our ideas will be controversial. We therefore do not necessarily speak of them as “recommendations.” Instead, we hope that our report will inspire a fruitful discussion between those stakeholders that have an interest in a more resilient financial system: policy-makers and supra-national bodies at a global level, regulators and governments at a national level, and senior managers at a firm level.
