"This is a very interesting book which provides readers with a wealth of information about the roles played by legislative bodies in making and implementing economic policy. More importantly the book offers students of comparative public policy a convincing set of observations that are derived from genuinely comparative examinations of legislatures working in different constitutional and contextual circumstances...This is a straightforward, honest effort to examine the roles of legislatures across different systems...Yet, this effort goes well beyond most comparative examinations which rarely attain the degree of comparative consistency that is managed here."
