By: Roumeen Islam (editor)Paperback

1 - 2 weeks availability


The contributors in the book raise awareness among policymakers, researchers and NGOs working on transparency and governance about the key role the media industry plays in economic and political markets. They also address market constraints that affect media content and the environment in which media companies operate in developing countries. The articles in this volume are meant to provide some new evidence and a good summary of previous research on how media reporting affects individual choices and outcomes. Some of them also address the regulatory framework under which media companies operate and the goals of regulation. Together, these articles should draw attention to an underresearched but important area of economics.
