...and am an even bigger fan now that it's been released in both hard copy form https://publications.worldbank.org/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=0&products_id=24507 as well as in electronic form the World Bank's Open Knowledge Repository: OKR: Municipal Finances : A Handbook for Local Governments.

Congratulations to Catherine Farvacque-Vitkovic and Mihaly Kopanyi, editors and all the great contributors to Municipal Finances: A Handbook for Local Governments on a job exceedingly well-done. We involved in the City Creditworthiness Initiative expect to be referring to this handbook extensively in the months and years to come. Municipal Finance Practicioners
