Africa at the crossroads
Ediz. italiana e inglese
06/2017 — Riccardo Pelizzo
The performance of African economies, in the past fifty years, has been cyclical. Economic expansion was followed by contraction, growth by decline and, a result, Africa has never been able to capitalize on its own socio-economic successes. From 2000 onward, African economies have experienced sustained strong growth. And the articles collected in this volume were written because it is clear that Africa finds itself once again at the crossroads.
