The Association Henri Capitant Publishes Answer to World Bank Report

In 2005 the World Bank published a report titled Doing Business – Removing Obstacles to Growth in which it heavily criticized the Civil Law tradition, and the French legal tradition in particular, as one of the primary reasons for underdevelopment in some Third World Countries... Last month, the Association Henri Capitant published the second volume of its response to the World Bank, available in French at this link. You can also read my translation of Professor Alain Levasseur’s, the President of the Association Henri Capitant Louisiana Chapter and Hermann Moyse, Sr. Professor of Law at LSU Law, answer to the World Bank in this link.
