Beschreibung:

This invaluable collection compares the relatively unsuccessful economic development of Subsaharan Africa with that of the successful Asian economies, especially the Asian 'tigers'. It covers three main areas of comparison: the lessons for Africa from the Asian experience; secondly, the comparisons of various aspects of economic development in Africa and Asia; and finally, convergence: how far the laggard economies are catching up with, or diverging away from, each other.
