About This Book

‘Africa and Economic Policy: Developing a Framework for Policymakers’ aims to fill an important gap in the current literature on economic policy in developing countries. Despite its richness and sophistication, the current economic literature has not yet succeeded in developing a framework for economic policy that is clear and intelligible to economic policymakers, and which is capable of effectively delivering a sustained increase in citizens’ well-being – something that developing countries’ policymakers, particularly those in Africa, are striving for.

This ground-breaking study seeks to rectify this problem by suggesting a unique conceptual framework for designing and conducting policy in developing countries, and primarily presents its proposals in an African context. In doing so, the volume addresses one of the major shortcomings of developing country economic policy literature as it now stands.
