Abstract

[Publisher's description:] This book provides a practical resource for academics, government policy analysts, and business professionals who wish to develop a more detailed understanding of some of the key economic issues facing the African region in 2020. In the face of weak governance and growth globally, there is still a window of opportunity for countries in Africa to build on not only their traditional industrial capabilities, but also pave the way for positive developments in international trade and in the way governments tackle poverty and inequality. By focusing on four areas—(1) agriculture and livestock, (2) consumption, poverty and inequality, (3) financial services, employment and corporate governance, and (4) economic integration, international trade and foreign direct investment (FDI)—this book presents a series of empirical studies that examine important contemporary economic issues facing Africa. The book incorporates a range of methodological approaches, with some chapters providing case study analyses while others embrace more traditional forms of econometric testing. This book is a useful resources for academics, students of higher education and business practitioners interested in African economics
