Abstract

Politicians and economists in sub-Saharan Africa claim that the eighties were a lost decade for Africa. Statistics justify this statement and prospects for the future are uncertain. Will the structural changes presently taking place in the world economy have a positive influence on development in sub-Saharan Africa? Are there helpful lessons to be learned from the experiences of eastern Europe?
