Next Wednesday, the MCC Board will select countries eligible to apply for FY 2007 funding. With funding tight, four countries with signed MCC compacts failing the indicators test but pressing for exemptions, and two countries that might be chosen for political purposes, this year's selection round will test the MCC's adherence to its principles.
We hope to see you at our event next Monday for a discussion with Steve Radelet on our recent papers, including our predictions on who makes the FY07 cut.
