Abstract:For three decades Nigeria missed its opportunities to use oil wealth for economic transformation, but since 2003 there have been remarkable efforts to reform economic policies. This book, which is the result of collaboration between the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Centre for the Study of African Economies at Oxford University, argues that the design of policy reform must rest on a firm basis of evidence and analysis. It shows that there is already sufficient evidence on the Nigerian economy and society to inform many policy issues. The book is organized around four themes: macroeconomic management, fiscal management within a federal system, the policy climate for private activity, and the well-being of households.
