A facinating study. With all the entrenched family networks around the world, its lessons are far reaching. Often when such family dynasties collapse the chaos that ensues makes such a study difficult. Records are destroyed and assets grow legs before order resumes. The efforts next door to account for the assets of the Libyan Sovereign Wealth Fund are a case in point. This early study in Tunisia is thus unique and timely. The challenge of course remains how the World Bank can constructively engage in countries while such individuals are in poor and the rent seeking machinery is still in place. How do we engage in resource rich central asian countries where similar structures and abuse are active? This study offers important insights in addressing these challenges, albeit with much work to be done!
