Abstract:This collective volume examines the early efforts at economic reform that took place in sub-Saharan Africa in the years after countries found themselves facing unsustainable deficits in the internal and external accounts. Following the introduction by David E. Sahn, chapters 2 through 11 describe the experiences of ten diverse countries: Ghana (Harold Alderman), Guinea (Jehan Arulpragasam and David E. Sahn), Zaire (wa Bilenga Tshishimbi, with the collaboration of Peter Glick and Erik Thorbecke), Cameroon (David Blandford et al.), Niger (Paul Dorosh), Malawi (David E. Sahn and Jehan Arulpragasam), Mozambique (Steven Kyle), Tanzania (Alexander H. Sarris and Rogier Van den Brink), Gambia (Cathy Jabara), and Madagascar (Paul Dorosh and René Bernier). Chapter 12, by David E. Sahn, describes lessons learned from the case studies and implications for policy.
