Abstract:This volume of African Development Review contains seven papers which were presented at the 2009 African Economic Conference which was planned against the background of the worst financial and economic crisis in half a century. Notwithstanding the negative aspects of the crisis Africa fared far better than expected. Papers in this issue pay particular attention to how Africa's development could be fostered. Contents: Introduction: fostering development in an era of financial and economic crisis (L. Ndikumana, A.B. Kamara and A. Mafusire); Revenue mobilization in African countries: does natural resource endowment matter? (Léonce Ndikumana and Kaouther Abderrahim); The global financial crisis and sub-Saharan Africa: the effects of slowing private capital inflows on growth (José Brambila-Macias and Isabella Massa); The external debt-servicing constraint and public-expenditure composition in sub-Saharan Africa (Augustin Kwasi Fosu); Understanding the growth of African financial markets (Mihasonirina Andrianaivo and Charles Amo Yartey); Debt sustainability and the ongoing financial crisis: the case of IDA-only African countries (Leonardo Hernández and Boris Gamarra); Unlocking productive entrepreneurship in Africa's least developed countries (Zuzana Brixiova); Aid and poverty in Africa: do well-being measures understate the progress?
