About this product
- DescriptionMany scholars of sub-Saharan Africa agree that inward-oriented development policies have hampered ecomic development in the region. Quinn questions traditional explanations for the low ecomic growth levels of sub-Saharan African countries by showing that majority state ownership of enterprise is a sufficient condition for inward-oriented policies and that this variable is a better predictor of such policies than other current explanations in the development literature. Supporting his observations through compelling case studies, Quinn offers a major statement that will be of interest to anyone concerned about African political and ecomic conditions and the future welfare of African peoples struggling to come to terms with the imperatives of a changing global ecomy.
