Poor corporate governance can have significant implications for the lives of ordinary people, whether in the most highly developed countries or in developing world, as illustrated by recent failures at Enron and WorldCom. This publication, based on case studies in Brazil, Chile, India, and South Africa, illustrates the importance of good corporate governance in developing countries, in helping to increase financial capital to firms and to achieving sustained productivity growth. However, its value cannot be considered in isolation, since financial sector measures are required to strengthen the banking sector and financial institutions as a whole, as well as focusing on competition policy and reforms of sector-specific regulatory practices.
