Title:Public investment in private enterprise: a Western Nigeria case study
Author:Baratz, M.S.
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
business financing
Abstract:There are a number of ways of looking at the investment (as distinct from the loan) policies and practices of the Western Region Finance Corporation. In this article three main questions are considered: 1. What general and specific criteria were laid down at the outset for the guidance of the Corporation in carrying out its investment programme?; 2. What investments did the Finance Corporation actually make and for what stated reasons?; 3. Judged in terms both of the criteria specified in the enabling statute and of certain more theoretical norms, was the investment programme well or badly implemented? References.
