Book Description

This book offers an in-depth analysis of the current state of the African economy and makes constructive suggestions about its future direction. The contributors argue that despite enduring challenges such as food security and employment creation, Africa faces a brighter future in sustainable growth provided that governance and policy- making are effectively employed to maintain peace, achieve greater regional collaboration and encourage private sector competitiveness.


'...breadth of subject matter and diversity of styles of analysis...provides a useful compendium of how a more modest breed of economists are grappling with Africa's economic predicament.' - Modern African Studies
