About this book

This book considers the principal sources of agreement and disagreement among policymakers and analysts concerning the current economic problems of Sub-Saharan Africa. A distinguished collection of international and African authors, including economists from the IMF and the World Bank, as well as their critics, addresses the key policy issues in agriculture, trade, macroeconomic management, social issues, privatization, external capital flow, and political economy. An introductory interpretive essay searches for areas of consensus and identifies those of continuing controversy.
