Abstract:Since 1973 growth rates in Sub-Saharan Africa have been below those in other developing countries. Some improvement is apparent but problems such as HIV/AIDS and the debt burden impose constraints. This book analyses African vulnerability to the global crisis and potential implications for economic growth, investment and poverty alleviation, fiscal balances and political stability. Chapter 1 is: U.S. trade and investment relationship with Sub-Saharan Africa: the African Growth and Opportunity Act by Vivian C. Jones. Chapter 2 is: The global economic crisis: impact on Sub-Saharan Africa and global policy responses by Alexis Arieff, Martin A. Weiss, Vivian C. Jones. Chapter 3 is: Impact of the global financial crisis on Sub-Saharan Africa and was produced by Import-Export Bank of the United States, the outcome of a panel discussion held prior to the meeting of the Sub-Saharan Africa Advisory Committee (SAAC) of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) on March 25, 2009.
