In this volume, world-renowned economists and policymakers write about industrial policy, which is being recognized anew as a linchpin for the economics of development. They show that developing countries that have undertaken a wide variety of industrial policies have been the most successful. In focusing on Africa, which has a potentially great producer and consumer base for industry, they have chosen a continent that provides an especially clear example of why this refreshed emphasis on industrial policy is so important.
