More details here Book Description (from Amazon): Prosperity Unbound presents an innovative approach to resolving the ambiguity of the "informal" contracts that affect property ownership in many developing countries. It illustrates how informality in property can be treated as an opportunity to unlock the potential for business expansion, economic growth, social cohesion and wealth creation for the lower and middle classes in many places. The book provides a timely overview of a problem that globalization has made an ever more important issue for investors, managers and policy makers alike.
