    Excellent blog on a central issue of the day. An important time for the institution to live up to these values, in form and substance.

    Very thoughtful piece, thanks Varun! I don't recall seeing the values underpinning our work to promote development quite so elegantly expressed anywhere else.

    Hi Sergio, Facundo,

    I enjoyed the blog post. It was interesting to read about this new view of financial development.

    Financial inclusion remains as an unfinished agenda for many developing countries, and this ‘pro-market activism’ approach will definitely shed light on how governments can approach challenges better.

    Public banks, along with their market infrastructure and correspondent banking networks, stand out as cost-effective ways to reach remote communities; however, delivering financial services to those communities is just part of the solution; I believe governments should pay more attention on financial literacy to increase access to finance.

    Great post! I am looking forward to reading the book to learn more about the pro-market activism approach. Thanks for sharing the link.
