In case you missed before, that is the title of a paper by Dani Rodrik  now published in the JEL , where he discusses (often praising) the World Bank's Economic Growth in the 1990s: Learning from a Decade of Reform , a study on development lessons of the 1990s.
The World Bank’s Economic Growth in the 1990s: Learning from a Decade of Reform (2005, henceforth Learning from Reform) is one of a spate of recent attempts at making sense of the facts of the last decade and a half, and probably the most intelligent. In fact, it is a rather extraordinary document insofar as it shows how far we have come from the original Washington Consensus.
Coming from the institution that is one of the chief architects of the reforms of the last twenty years, Learning from Reform is a genuinely interesting document: it represents a mea culpa as well as a way forward. It pushes us to think harder and deeper about the economics of reform than anything else out there. It warns us to be skeptical of top-down, comprehensive, universal solutions—no matter how well-intentioned they may be. And it reminds us that the requisite economic analysis—hard as it is, in the absence of specific blueprints—has to be done case by case.
