Measuring the Effectiveness of Social Protection : Concepts and Applications

World Bank, 2018.


‘Measuring the Effectiveness of Social Protection: Concepts and Applications’ provides the conceptual and analytical framework for assessing social protection (SP) programs, as well as provides a practical guide for users seeking to conduct analysis, particularly using the World Bank’s Software Platform for Automated Economic Analysis (ADePT).

The book provides a comprehensive unique resource to tie together social policy theory, concepts and practical analytical techniques. The book content is targeted at policymakers and practitioners worldwide seeking to improve the outcomes of their social protection policies.

It suggests advanced methods and a new rapid analysis instrumental for technical experts working on quantitative SP analysis for their ministry, national statistics offices, think tanks, universities, or development organizations.

The book aims to equip users with different statistical background and SP knowledge to independently conduct SP analysis and prepare a standardized set of tables and graphs to conduct different types of SP performance analysis, ranging from benchmarking SP performance within and across countries, simulating the performance of alternative reform options, and assessing the viability of proposed programs.

How does family involvement affect a firm’s internationalization? An investigation of Indian family firms

Global Strategy Journal, Volume 8, Issue 1, February 2018
Research Summary: We investigate whether and how family ownership and management influence firms’ internationalization strategies in an emerging economy in which family firms are dominant. Anchoring on the willingness and ability framework and drawing on the socioemotional wealth perspective and agency theory, we theorize how the heterogeneity among family firms in their ownership structures, concentration, and family involvement in management shapes the firms’ internationalization strategies. We also theorize how certain contingencies, such as the presence of foreign institutional ownership and family management, moderate the relationship between family ownership and internationalization strategy. We test our predictions by using a proprietary, longitudinal panel dataset of 303 leading family firms from India and find support for most of our theoretical predictions.

CDS Working Paper no. 473


Developing countries show a predilection for fixed exchange rates even though this prevents monetary autonomy in the presence of capital flows. This paper examines the operation of the gold standard (GS) during the period 1870-1914, its heyday. It discusses the theory of balance of payments adjustment under the GS. Theory postulates automatic and symmetric adjustment by deficit and surplus countries. The paper then analyses the experience with adjustment. It analyses whether central banks followed “the rules of the game”. It finds not only significant
differences between adjustment in the core countries and in the countries in the periphery, but significant differences among the core countries also. We find that countries in the periphery accumulated large reserves to cope with balance of payments deficits just as they today, even though at that time the core countries adopted fixed exchange rates and today they adopt floating exchange rates.
