Greetings From Guy
I am very proud to share with you GBSN's most recent publication, "Cutting a Path to Prosperity - How Education Pioneers are Building Better Business Schools for the Developing World and Why."
The book opens with up-to-date evidence of why management education is a key ingredient of economic and social development. It then gives voice to ten builders of innovative and highly distinctive business schools in the developing world. They speak of their visions, of many obstacles they encountered, and of their success in growing institutions that produce the leaders, managers and entrepreneurs, which the developing world so badly needs. Alumni explain, in their own words, how management education improved their lives and their communities. The authors build on the main lessons of the pioneering schools, to shed light on the path ahead - how major stakeholders can work together to consolidate and scale up the progress achieved so far.

GBSN Advisor's Book - Insourced: How Importing Jobs Impacts the Healthcare Crisis Here and Abroad
By Guy Pfeffermann
Dr. Tulenko’s book is a must read for anyone interested in international development (as well as those whose interest revolves around health issues within the United States). Put most simply, the book is about highly toxic "agglomeration effects”. Just as William Easterly showed that an inordinate share of US wealth is concentrated in a handful of zip codes, so it is with health workers. Market forces – meaning salaries and working conditions – draw talent to the highest-income locations within countries, and, internationally, to the highest-income countries. The social costs of such private incentives are appalling.
