Series:The Making of Modern Africa
City of publisher:Aldershot
Geographic term:Ethiopia
Subject:economic development
Abstract:The essays collected in this volume assess the economic consequences of the Ethiopian Revolution, 1974-1991. The introductory essay (by Berhanu Abegaz) summarizes the major findings of the papers as well as their wider implications. The second chapter (Berhanu Nega) presents a model of Ethiopia as an open peripheral-socialist economy. Two sectoral surveys follow: they explore wide-ranging issues in agricultural (Mesfin Mirotchie) and industrial (Berhanu Abegaz) development in Ethiopia. The two remaining essays deal with the economics of small-scale industry (Roman Habtu) and structural changes experienced by manufacturing firms under radically different policy environments in the years 1960 to 1988 (Mulatu Wubneh). The concluding paper (Berhanu Abegaz) provides an explicit treatment of the more notable implications of these and other studies for recent (1990-1992) and future Ethiopian economic reform.
