From Crisis to Growth in Africa?

Synopsis

This work is concerned with the problem of achieving sustained economic growth in 13 African countries. These are divided into three groups - the war stricken economics, the reform strugglers, and the growth seekers.

Excerpt

The essays in the present volume were originally presented at the conference 'From Crisis to Growth in Africa?' at the Stockholm School of Economics on 7-8 May 1999. They constitute the sequel to a similar exercise in 1991, subsequently (1993) published by Routledge, titled Economic Crisis in Africa: Perspectives on Policy Responses, edited by Magnus Blomström and Mats Lundahl. The origin of both volumes is a program of cooperation in macroeconomic and development between the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Departments of Economics at the Universities of Lund and Göteborg and the Stockholm School of Economics. All the authors in the present book have been involved in this program.

I am grateful to Sida for sponsoring the conference. Thanks are also due to Lilian Öberg for taking on all the practical duties on this occasion and to Carin Blomkvist for preparing the manuscript for publication. Finally, the quality of the text has been improved by the constructive criticism offered by two anonymous referees. Remaining errors rest with ourselves - the authors.
