Economic Reform and the Poor in Africa examines policy responses to the economic crises faced by most African countries in the 1980s, focusing on the contentious issue of whether the poor are hurt by economic policies designed to restore allocation. The contributors use empirical models toseparate the effects of the economic crises that caused countries to begin adjusting, from the impact of the economic reforms themselves. With these models, they examine the impact of specific policy reforms- under the broad headings of trade and exchange rate policy, fiscal policy, andagricultural sector policy - in spefic country concepts . The countries covered are Cameroon, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Niger, Tanzania, and Zaire.
David E. Sahn is a Professor of Economics at Cornell University.
