Business, Politics, and the State in Africa
Challenging the Orthodoxies on Growth and TransformationeBook - 2013
Africa's economies appear to have turned a corner. Commentators are beginning to ask whether a new generation of 'lions' is emerging to challenge the East Asian 'tigers'. This book examines the conditions necessary not just for growth in Africa but for a wider business and economic transformation. Drawing on studies of Rwanda, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Ghana, it argues, controversially, that neo-patrimonial governance need not be an obstacle to improved economic conditions.
