Recommendation

The World Bank annually assesses the ways that business regulations affect economic growth in developed and developing economies and how those laws change over time. This report examines changes in contract enforcement, taxes and zoning in markets of all sizes and stages of development. Reforms and regulations governing business differ enormously among nations. Policy makers’ stance on an array of decisions – including credit reporting, protecting minority investors and even zoning – can influence businesses’ decisions to move to their jurisdictions.
