Business, Politics and the State in Africa: Challenging the Orthodoxies on Growth and Transformation.

Los comentaristas están empezando a preguntarse si acaso no está surgiendo en África una nueva generación de economías "león" para retar a los "tigres" Asiáticos. Este libro va más allá de los titulares para examinar las condiciones necesarias, no sólo para el crecimiento en África, sino para un tipo de negocios  y de transformación económica más amplios.

Commentators are beginning to ask whether emerging from Africa is a new generation of 'lion' economies to challenge the East Asian 'tigers'? This book goes behind the headlines to examine the conditions necessary not just for growth in Africa but for a wider business and economic transformation. Contrary to neo-liberal economics, it argues that governments can play an important role in this through selective interventions to correct market failures, and, controversially, that 'neo-patrimonial' governance need not necessarily be an obstacle to improved business and economic conditions. Drawing on timely case studies - including Rwanda, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Ghana - this provocative book provides a radical new theory of the political and institutional conditions required for pro-poor growth in Africa.
