What holds Nepal's economy back? And what would it take to unleash its development potential? This book tries to address these issues from the perspective of a Nepali development professional with extensive experience in international development. The author offers a candid critique of what ails Nepal's politics and economy, and how to rebuild the country from the ruins of the prolonged Maoist mayhem and the mega earthquake of 2015. He calls for an end to Nepal's seemingly endless political transition and shifting the nation's focus to economic development and social progress.
