This volume focuses on the political economy surrounding the detailed decisions that governments make at each step of the value chain for natural resource management. From the perspective of public interest or good governance, many resource-dependent developing countries pursue apparently short-sighted and sub-optimal policies in relation to the extraction and capture of resource rents, and to spending and savings from their resource endowments. This work contextualizes these micro-level choices and outcomes.

Evaluates the per capita methodology for profiling physicians -- a method which measures a patient's resource use over a fixed period of time and attributes that resource use to physicians -- in order to assist with the development of a physician feedback approach. It examines: (1) the extent to which physicians in selected specialties show stable practice patterns and how beneficiary utilization of services varies by physician resource use level; (2) factors to consider in developing feedback reports on physicians' performance, incl. per capita resource use; and (3) the extent to which feedba
