The Annual Bank Conference on Development Economics (ABCDE) is one of the world's best known series of conferences for the presentation and discussion of new knowledge about development. First held at World Bank headquarters in Washington D.C. in 1988, the ABCDE has become broader in scope as the world's economies have become more interconnected and challenges have become more complex. This year’s volume, Annual World Bank Conference on Development Economics 2005, presents selected papers from the 16th ABCDE meetings, held in May 2004. It reviews the lessons of 60 years of development experience, addressing key topics such as infrastructure, behavioral economics, trade, poverty, and globalization. The volume is a critical reference guide for development research and will be of interest to practitioners and those studying international development and poverty reduction.
