Better institutions (but not all); 4. Better access to external finance (but only 22 out of 69 were investment grade and another 20 had volatile access); 5. Alternatives to the Bank for funds and advice; a test of the Bank’s value added.” From WB Conference on Effectiveness of Policies and Reforms: 4/10/2004
