Reforms for politicians who want to be reelected

A new book analyzes governments that completed their term of power in OECD countries between the mid-1990s and 2020. Governments that introduce ambitious growth oriented reforms not only boost entrepreneurship, job creation, human development and climate policy effectiveness, but also significantly increase their own chances of re-election.

This book updates and extends a previous book, Renaissance for Reforms, that has met wide international interest. It was reviewed in 37 different countries and translated into several languages.

Dr. Nigel Ashford, George Mason University, wrote:

“This is the required companion volume to Why Nations Fail by Acemoglu and Robinson. While those authors demonstrate that poor institutions are the explanation for economic failure, it is Sanandaji and Fölster that provide the the successful strategy to overcome the obstacles. They demonstrate that market reforms lead to both economic and electoral success. Policy makers no longer have an excuse for not following the best policies. Renaissance for Reforms is required reading for all interested in policy change: academics, students, policy makers and politicians.”
