˹
M.E. Sharpe, 1997 - 230 ˹
From an interdisciplinary political economy perspective, delineates the main components of Africa's rapid decline in the 1970s and 1980s, and identifies the challenges of policy reform and change in the near future. Among the factors found contributing to the continent's poverty are a weakening balance of payments, declining agricultural productivity and foreign investment, deterioration of the physical infrastructure and environment, escalating unemployment and crime, famine and malnutrition, and socioeconomic inequality.
