The resource curse, also known as the paradox of plenty, refers to the paradox that countries with an abundance of natural resources (such as fossil fuels and certain minerals), tend to have less economic growth, less democracy, and worse development outcomes than countries with fewer natural resources. There are many theories and much academic debate about the reasons for, and exceptions to. An underlying concern of this book is to highlight the need to move beyond the resource curse debate. The inverse relationship between natu - ral resource abundance and economic development is known in the spe-cialized literature as the “resource curse” or the “paradox of plenty.” For de-. All these resources are distributed randomly across our planet, owing to which, every place has a set of its own natural resources, which aid in its economic development. Because these resources are randomly distributed, they are available in abundance in some places, whereas they are found in .

This book explores the factors behind the underperformance of resource-abundant developing countries compared to resource-deficient countries.

Drawing on research from various subfields within economics literature, it argues that since the s, the natural resource endowment of a developing country has strongly affected its capital utilisation efficiency and the nature of its long-term development trajectory.

Since the s the economies of the resource-poor nations have grown much faster than those of the resource-abundant nations. This book explains the disappointing performance of resource-abundant nations by extending the growth accounting framework to include natural and social capital.

Malaysia, a rare example of successful resource-abundant development, is contrasted with Ghana, Bolivia, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Argentina, which all experienced a growth collapse. The book also explores policies for reviving collapsed economies with reference to Costa Rica, South Africa, Russia and Central Asia.

This is spelled out clearly in the book’s opening chapter by the. This emerging literature exploits within-country variation and is opening new ways to think about the relation between natural resources and economic development.

The main message is that others factors, such as market mechanisms and local spillovers, are also relevant for understanding the impact of resource abundance. natural resource abundance was beneficial for economic devel- opment of a region.
